Strong Anti-Corruption programs, overseen by the Board of Directors, provide critical support for good corporate governance. This webinar addresses two themes that are integral to ESG: 1) Internal systems to effectively address corruption risk, particularly the role of the Board of Directors. 2) How anti-corruption is reflected in ESG ratings, and if these are valid indicators of a corporation’s true ESG performance.

Join us for a lively discussion on effective climate governance, impact investing, and the philanthropic sector. For a long time, foundations have separated their grant-making function from their investment function. These two aspects of foundation management are increasingly coming together as investments can have a big impact on the causes they support. Participation of boards, investment committee members, and staff is highly encouraged.
