1 Overview CPE credit | Specialized Knowledge

Corporate scandals involving problematic company cultures can lead to investors questioning the effectiveness of the board's governance role, as well as asking about financial penalties, reputational damage, and other organizational impacts. How can board members better monitor corporate culture, understand potential cultural risks, and ask effective questions of management to best address problems early on? We'll discuss:

  • The culture spectrum, from good to toxic, and warning signs.
  • How a positive culture can be reinforced across the organization.
  • Ideas for setting the tone at the top and influencing culture.
  • The importance of a strong board culture.

Participants will learn how board members can provide effective oversight of corporate culture risk.
