The Institute for Corporate Responsibility (ICR) at the GW Business School is pleased to announce the next program in its ongoing series on Challenges in Corporate Governance. The program will be sponsored jointly by the ICR and C-LEAF, The Center for Law, Economics, and Finance at the GW Law School. The program will focus on Corporate Directors’ Role in Risk Management post Dodd Frank, with a particular emphasis on financial institutions. The Dodd Frank Act directs the Federal Reserve Board to require certain large publicly traded financial companies to establish a Board Risk Committee.
The program will commence with welcoming remarks by Paul Schiff Berman, Dean and Robert Kramer Research Professor of Law, GW Law School and Doug Guthrie, Dean, Professor of International Business and Professor of Management at the GW’s School of Business.  The program will include two consecutive panels, introduced by Art Wilmarth, Executive Director, Center for Law, Economics & Finance (C-LEAF) and John Forrer, Associate Director, Institute for Corporate Responsibility (ICR), respectively.  The first panel will cover the perspective from outside the boardroom, and will address the role of directors in risk management from the viewpoint of a regulator, an attorney, an industry analyst, and a researcher. The second panel will address the directors’ role from inside the boardroom, including two board directors, an auditor, and a chief risk officer.
