For boards of directors confronted with the sometimes conflicting mandates of overseeing profitability while also meeting stakeholders’ expanding expectations, understanding the evolving role they and their corporations play in society is critical. Following our interview with ICD Fellow John Manley, the video features John Haigh, Co-Director of the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government discussing the role of the corporation in society and what it means to be a corporate citizen.  We then present a panel featuring Simon Kennedy, Canada’s Deputy Minister of Industry and Innovation, Carine Smith Ihenacho, Chief Governance and Compliance Officer, Norges Bank and Karina Litvack, director, Eni S.p.A. They provide their perspective on business’ interaction with societal change and the opportunities available to corporate leaders to address environmental and social challenges.

Each session is moderated by Martin Cej, Partner, Longview Communications and Public Affairs.
