CGIC Sponsored Webinar – What is the State of Purpose Governance in Canada?

Corporate governance continues to evolve driven by high-performing boards, new standards, and evolving stakeholder expectations.

One area undergoing transformation is the board’s role in oversight of corporate purpose. To understand this emerging practice, five governance organizations collaborated with the Canadian Purpose Economy Project on a national survey to assess the State of Purpose Governance in Canada.

We are pleased to invite you to this free one-hour webinar to explore this ground-breaking report and the purpose governance trend it reveals.

  4. Role of purpose in board education and recruitment 
  5. Best practices in purpose governance – and more
