The Conference Board: Governance Watch Webcast
September 12, 2017
The Conference Board will host its monthly Governance Watch Webcast on September 12, 2017, which will feature industry leaders discussing the latest developments in corporate governance matters. This event will provide an opportunity for a dynamic discussion among the participants rather than a formal presentation.
Partner Steven J. Durham will participate in the webcast titled, “Recent Whistleblower Issues,” and will address recent legal and factual developments related to federal agency whistleblowers. The webcast will also include a discussion of the recent Bio-Rad trial involving a successful retaliation claim by a former general counsel against his own company, among other current topics. The program will also focus on practical tips for thinking about and dealing with issues that may arise in developing and maintaining an effective compliance program that will withstand scrutiny by the federal regulatory authorities. Other participants include:
- Douglas Chia, Executive Director, The Conference Board
- Matthew C. Solomon, Partner, Clearly Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP
