Board Diversity and Culture

23/11/2017 7:15:00 AM | Victoria
There is a great deal of discussion about the benefits of having diversity on a board of directors. Regardless of the type of board, evidence would suggest that having a diversity in its many forms–gender, culture, skills, knowledge, age leads to better decision-making. For public company boards, increased levels of gender diversity are linked to improved financial performance. What does this mean in practical terms for directors at both publicly-traded companies and for non-profit boards? Hear about how boards can improve their recruitment practices and improve processes to foster a diversity of views and a constructive board culture.

The Role of the Chair

28/11/2017 11:50:00 AM | Calgary
This session is not just for board chairs.  If you are a board member or board chair understanding the role of the chair and her/his interactions with the other directors and management will assist in your effectiveness as a director.  Please join us in a unique lunch session designed to allow attendees to exchange their ideas and experiences with fellow ICD Members in a round table discussion format. Our experienced panelists will circulate among the tables, providing their gems of insight and seasoned examples to help make this a real hands-on learning. 

Delivering the (Public) Goods- Governing Crown Corporations and Agencies in the Public Interest

28/11/2017 12:00:00 PM | Halifax
Most Crown corporations and agencies are created to provide goods and services in the “public interest.” What does it mean for a Crown corporation or agency to operate in the public interest?  Who decides what’s in the public interest? What role (if any) does the Minister/government have in making that decision?  How do board members contribute to creating a corporate culture that enables organizations to fulfill their mandates while at the same time meeting taxpayers’ and government’s expectations?
