Whether boards were responding to data and privacy breaches, sexual misconduct allegations, challenges to their compensation practices, whistle blowing or other corporate crises, 2018 was an eventful year. Directors can learn from these external events and use them as a tool for crisis preparedness. 
Oversight of crisis management and preparedness are key responsibilities of any board. Whether you serve on the board of a private or public company, a not-for-profit corporation, a Crown corporation or government agency, eventually your organization will face a crisis. When that crisis hits, the effectiveness of the board, and its ability to side step a fatal disaster, will be determined by the quality and timeliness of its response.
Join the Institute of Corporate Directors and Osler Hoskin & Harcourt LLP as we review some of the top corporate crises of 2018 and take a look at longer term impacts on corporations which faced a crisis in prior years. This one-hour webinar will focus on new learnings to help your organization identify and mitigate risks and ultimately respond effectively when a crisis hits.
