Webinar – What stakeholder capitalism means for governance in practice

Presented by

Corporate Secretary & Govenda

About this talk

Companies have never faced so much scrutiny of their impact on stakeholders beyond their shareholders. That attention was encapsulated in 2019 when 181 CEOs of major US companies signed a Business Roundtable statement that corporations should look to the interests of not only shareholders but also customers, employees, suppliers and communities. But events of the last 18 months – ranging from the need to protect employees during a global pandemic to a heightened focus on racial equity and greater awareness of the climate crisis – have ratcheted up discussions of stakeholder capitalism to unprecedented levels. In this webinar, our panel of experts will look beyond slogans to examine how stakeholder capitalism is working, or could work, in terms of corporate governance. Topics for discussion include: • What does stakeholder capitalism mean for board structures and board discussions? • How can the board best assess and meet employees’ needs? • How important are different stakeholder issues to investors? • What role should directors play in engagement efforts outside of investors? • What is the role of stakeholder impact assessments such as racial equity audits? • How can governance teams collect and share information with the board on the company’s impact across all stakeholder groups?
