Moderated by Chairman Helen Pitcher OBE, also President of INSEAD Directors Network, the conversation promises to be a stimulating exchange of perspectives on how the pandemic will shape the paradigm of corporate governance.
The debate between shareholder versus stakeholder primacy has come under the spotlight amidst the coronavirus pandemic. With heightened emphasis on the collective well-being of stakeholder communities worldwide, corporate boards are under intense scrutiny to find a delicate balance between maximizing shareholder and stakeholder value. The crisis has revealed that focusing on shareholder value alone is no longer a viable option. Business leaders and corporate boards have a critical role to play in creating sustainable value not just for economic performance but society progress as well. While stakeholder capitalism is the key to unlock inclusive sustainable growth, corporate boards must not overlooked the associated risks involved in stakeholder governance.
