NYU Directors’ Institute - Reorganized
Our premier directors education event has been reworked into a Global Governance Roundtable that is invitation only.
NYU Global Governance Roundtable:
Building Ethical and Sustainable Global Companies
Friday April 25, 2014
Lipton Hall• 108 West Third St • New York, NY 10012
All global businesses, regardless of industry, have a growing challenge in cultivating ethical cultures both within their organization and with those external to the firm with whom they engage. Companies in pharmaceutical, technology, manufacturing, financial services and extractive industries have all recently confronted these issues. This conversation, among academic and professionals on the forefront of understanding and meeting these challenges, is intended to advance thinking and practices in these areas.
This roundtable is an invitation only moderated discussion with select leading business and legal practitioners and members of NYU law and business schools. Trevor Morrison, Dean and Clarence D. Ashley Professor of Law at New York University School of Law and Peter Henry, W.R. Berkley Professor of Economics and Finance, Richard R. West Dean at New York University Stern School of Business will make opening remarks at 8:30am. Kevin Davis, Vice Dean at NYU School of Law and Beller Family Professor of Business Law at NYU School of Law, with others, will lead the first session (8:45-10:30am) on developing global corporate compliance cultures.
