Sustainability and equity are on the agenda at the upcoming international Global Corporate Governance conference
Despite a global pandemic, equity and sustainability within businesses is a well conversed topic. Both will be discussed at The Global Corporate Governance Institute’s (GCGI) yearly international conference taking place on June 8-10 and hosted by the Southern University Law Center. This year’s theme is “Global Corporate Governance: Sustainability and Equity”.
“Our yearly conference is intended to bring legal scholars and practitioners into contact with business scholars and practitioners on the topic of incorporating sustainability and equity into Global Corporate Governance,” said Samuel Idowu, president of The Global Corporate Governance Institute . “The various panels are intended to spark exchange on innovations, best practices, and entrepreneurship that can enable growth, equity, and sustainability of all kinds. Holding the conference in the United States is ideal for this purpose.”
“As a progressive institution, we are excited host this year’s conference where thought leaders and academic scholars will discuss critical topics that impact our global communities and businesses.” said John Pierre, chancellor of the Southern University Law Center.
GCGI is a non-profit entity registered in England and has held annual conferences on corporate governance and corporate social responsibility since 2014 in places such as the United Kingdom, China, Australia, Germany, the United Arab Emirates, Spain, and Portugal. This year’s conference will be the first held in the Western Hemisphere. The conferences attract global scholars, lawyers, and businesspeople who present their research on how corporations are addressing or should be addressing the most serious issues facing society. The best papers are then published by a major international publisher.
During the conference, in addition to presenting their research, participants will engage in discussions, hear presentations from noteworthy keynote speakers, and network with conference attendees. Speakers will include local, national, and international trailblazers in business, law, and society on topics relating to entrepreneurial approaches to sustainability and equity.
Participants can participate virtually or in-person. Abstract submissions have already begun and early bird registration begins November 15. Registration fees vary from $75 to $400.
