Learning from the Past: Corporate Governance Before and After the Financial Crisis

After the 2008 financial crisis, the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission identified dramatic failures of corporate governance at many systemically important U.S. financial institutions as one of the key causes of the crisis.

Join us for a webinar with Shiva Rajgopal, the Kester and Byrnes Professor of Accounting and Auditing at Columbia Business School, during which he will share insights from his latest research on board oversight, looking specifically at boards of banks before and after the financial crisis.

In this 30-minute webinar you will learn about:

•The key deficiencies in the composition of bank boards before the financial crisis
• How bank boards have, and haven’t, learned from the crisis
• The importance of succession planning and how to deal with changes in board structure
• How to avoid groupthink and optimize decision making from diverse perspectives
• The time commitment that comes along with your role on a board
