2021 Vanguard GC Forum.jpeg

Third Annual Vanguard Forum for General Counsels

In just over a year, ESG has moved from the back burner for General Counsels, to the front burner - and it will be staying there.

 

Join us for the Vanguard Forum for General Counsels noon-noon this October 13-14 to explore the unique challenges ESG presents, and how to respond.

 

Unlike the plethora of other programs on ESG that focus on the "what" and the "how" of ESG, this Vanguard Forum will be different. Instead, we will be looking at the role of General Counsels as leaders and decision-makers on ESG.

 

Topics will range from ethical dilemmas GCs must address around making ESG commitments into the future, to leading Board dialogues on ESG issues, to balancing priorities around the multiple components of ESG.

 

As always, the Forum will generate deep dialogue around real-world GC challenges, in the company of peers from across sectors.
