Leading Through Complexity: The New Role of the GC

General Counsels Virtual Sessions, June 23rd, 2022, 1 pm to 6 pm ET

This will be a significant opportunity to reflect on the critical ways in which the role of the GC has transformed over the past several years.  


From taking on leadership responsibility for other functions, to quarterbacking ESG, the complexity of GC challenges and the bandwidth required to succeed have increased almost exponentially over the past five years.


As recommended by members, we are further refining the format for these Sessions. We will have even more engaged discussions, and a greater number of smaller group working sessions.


Session topics include:

  • Managing the expanding portfolio responsibilities of the GC

  • Where do we go with ESG? (small groups)

  • How do we create value for the business today?

  • The people problems - Who do we need on our teams?  Where do we find them?  How do we develop them?  (case study and working groups)

  • Help me solve my issue! (small teams take turns assessing each other’s pressing leadership challenge, and pose solutions)


Participation fee: $500 (Vanguard Network members with a paid annual membership can register for free).
