Event Details

Corporate Counsel Business Journal is proud to announce ESG In Action! A half-day virtual event on June 2, 2021. Our subject matter experts will speak to key issues and developments surrounding accountability, enforcement, investment and innovation.

Leading law departments and law firms are at the center of how many organizations self-assess and refine both their focus and resources related to ESG initiatives. Learn from industry experts about how to identify key metrics that shape and monitor corporate ESG programs - and how to integrate these priorities into your organization's culture.

This is not an instance of “wait and see,” but the opportunity to hear leaders speak to their challenges, risks and solutions within their ESG programs.
