Embracing an Inclusive, Stakeholder-Focused Governance Approach

Embracing an Inclusive, Stakeholder-Focused Governance Approach

Join WATSON for an engaging panel session.

The concept of stakeholder capitalism focuses on ensuring organizational decision-making considers and balances the interests, risks, and opportunities for all parties affected by an organization’s operations, beyond members or shareholders.

Sharon Rudy will moderate a discussion with John Jennings, Rachel Colabella, and Rachel O'Connor, as they unpack this increasing pressing topic
