Over the past year-plus, public health and social justice crises have galvanized stakeholder scrutiny of corporations’ business practices and treatment of their employees, and dramatically increased investor demand for disclosures and actions on these issues.

In this session, we will hear from experts Jane Storero, Senior Corporate Governance Counsel at the Long Term Stock Exchange, and Lyndon Park, Head of Governance Solutions at ICR.
