Governance Working Group Call: Shareholder versus Stakeholder Governance Perspectives

January 30, 2013

The Governance Working Group (GWG), which is housed by the CFI’s Investing in Inclusive Finance team, is hosting a debate on the North American (shareholder) versus European (stakeholder) views on governance. The keynote speakers will be Judith Mayer, research assistant at the chair in Entrepreneurial Finance at the Technische Universität München, representing the stakeholder perspective, and Lauren Burnhill, managing director of One Planet Ventures, discussing the shareholder perspective. This discussion will also include impacts of the stakeholder and shareholder perspectives on responsible exits, and updates on the GWG members’ current governance projects.
