Time: 8:00AM - 9:00AM (PST)

Join Mintz and the San Diego Chapter of ACC for a webinar on ESG fundamentals, as they relate to the role of in house counsel as advisors to corporate boards. While a growing number of companies and investors embrace ESG, it is evolving to encompass a broad spectrum of social and governance developments that shape and impact shareholder interests. Some of these issues include environmental sustainability, the economic, community, and health effects of the coronavirus pandemic, the increased focus on gender and racial equity in board composition, and the call for racial justice — both in the boardroom and throughout corporate America.

This webinar will focus on ESG fundamentals; what is the ESG movement, what ESG means for the role of in house counsel and as advisors to corporate boards, the economic, community, the increased focus on gender and racial equity in board composition, and the moral imperative of achieving racial justice. Topics to be covered include the in-house counsel’s role in matters such as board refreshment, compliance with statutory mandates such as California’s gender and underrepresented community laws, diversity and the role of in house counsel in governance matters.

Our discussion will include:

  • Direction for in house counsel in understanding their role in ESG
  • Compliance with statutory mandates such as California’s gender and underrepresented community laws
  • Role of in house counsel in governance matters
  • How corporate diversity, inclusion, and equity initiatives influence ESG metric
