19.7.2022 NEDonBoard: Summer NED Networking & Insights on the “S” of ESG

July 19 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Free - £80.00
This event (hosted in-person and online) is an excellent opportunity to connect with fellow board members and hear latest ESG insights.

During this session you will hear from legal experts at Mayer Brown some of the latest thinking and experiences around the ‘S’ of ESG. Feedback from the board community has highlighted that whilst many boards are getting to grips with the E of ESG, the Social component is an area where board members are keen to better understand good practices.

Discussion will include focus on how NEDs can work to promote Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and other Social factors.

We welcome attendees to stay on after the discussion for networking and refreshments. Join NEDonBoard and Mayer Brown for this summer social occasion to network with your board level peers – including non-execs, chairs, CEOs, those in other exec roles and board advisers.

This event is sponsored and hosted by Mayer Brown.
