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.

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?

Risk management is on the tip of everyone’s tongue these days, and it is expected that organizations will have a robust risk management strategy. But how do we keep our strategy fresh and meaningful? How do we operationalize it? Should NFPs take a different customized approach?

The Future of NAFTA?

11/12/2017 8:00:00 AM | Ottawa
What is the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)? President Trump is threatening to withdraw, and negotiations for a revised agreement have started. The stakes are high as Canada and the U.S. are the world’s largest trading partners, with $544 billion in two-way trade, and over 2 million Canadian and 9 million U.S. jobs dependent on that trade. Important issues around the dairy and auto sectors, dispute resolution, government procurement and a sunset clause have been tabled. Talks continue as the negotiations have been extended into the first quarter of 2018; however, the future is uncertain.
