"New Governance Challenges for Board members in Europe"
The European Confederation of Directors Associations (ecoDa) has developed a unique European module for directors and supervisory board members seeking to gain European perspective on board functioning and corporate governance. As result of global economic forces, modern boards are becoming increasingly diverse in their composition and business perspectives. For companies operating across Europe, directors and supervisory board member must rapidly gain an understanding of unfamiliar corporate governance systems, regulations, and best practices. They also need an overview of the rapidly changing and often complex EU policy debate on corporate governance.
The main topics of the program are the following:
Diversity in Corporate Governance frameworks
Overview of European Corporate Governance: Diversity or Convergence?

Serving as a director in different European corporate governance systems

ESG matters: how it impacts your business model and the decision-making at board level – Sharing experience

The program is designed for:
