About this event

With COP26 having just concluded and climate change and social issues making headlines, it’s easy to forget that the “G” in ESG is for Governance and that the “E” and “S” are simply sets of the myriad factors that a company considers as it assesses its risks and opportunities, forms its strategy, articulates its ethical standards, sets policy & procedures, manages assets (including but not limited to funds, human capital, data and physical assets), monitors performance, evaluates & communicates results and otherwise engages with its stakeholders.

Join WFF for its fourth ESG Panel for 2021 as we explore the various aspects of Governance. This panel promises a robust discussion by leaders representing a wide range of perspectives on Governance. Returning ESG Panel Moderator Shari Siegel will be joined by Judith Albert, Andrea Bonime-Blanc, Robert Duggan, Sandi Kim-Suk and Jean-Paul Peters for this event.
