Recorded on 15 January 2015.
Corporate Boards are a central part of a firm’s governance structure, and have since the 1980s received regulatory attention in the attempt to improve firm performance. Lately, other social considerations have made it to the regulatory agenda. The presentation will focus on two key questions: What do we really know about corporate boards? Why should we care?
