7:30am-8:00am Registration & Buffet
With our country in a period of political polarization not seen perhaps since the years of the Vietnam War, the utterances of a senior executive as well as his/her participation on a politically sensitive advisory board or other activity, which may formerly have been fairly innocuous, can take on an outsized importance and have potentially serious consequences for a company’s brand, relationships with customers, vendors and employees, and its enterprise value. In addition, the erstwhile noncontroversial policies of a company about how to conduct its business may touch upon “litmus test” issues that can be political landmines.
How can boards deal proactively with these sensitive issues, and what principles should guide them? How do company codes of ethics, whistleblower hotlines, and other tools of management and governance relate to these issues? Join our panel of experts as we explore an extremely topical – and complicated! – issue.Speakers Venue
