The global financial crisis cast doubt on the foundation of the prevailing corporate governance system – its practices, policies, and core assumptions. Voices of Governance examines the issue of oversight as expressed by governance experts from 2009 to the present. In short individual interviews, as well as commentary on critical presentations and publications, Voices of Governance presents a unique and ultimately optimistic picture of where we are and where we are headed.
Listen to the conversation as business leaders, governance experts and shareholders discuss what’s right with governance, and talk about the solutions being developed across today’s business, legal and political frontiers. The dialogue conveys the concerns and issues as well as well as answers that deliver the true transparency and oversight that protect shareholders. At the same time Voices describes an increasingly wide range of stakeholder and public policy interests in the operational and financial domains of corporations today.
