(Wilmington, DE): Attorney General Jane Brady has been invited to make two national presentations in the coming weeks on the topic of
Corporate Governance. Corporate Governance has been defined as the way in which businesses are directed and controlled and defines the rights and responsibilities of the corporate board, managers, and shareholders. The concept also focuses on ensuring fairness and accountability in the operation of corporations.
On March 29th, Brady will be a featured speaker at the State Government Affairs Council
annual meeting in New Orleans. She will address the topic of "Corporate Governance and the State Government Relations Role" focusing on how the business community can educate management on the state's role in corporate governance. Her co-presenter is Martin L. Taylor, Vice President for Organizational Services for the Institute for Global Ethics. The State Government Affairs Council is an organization of state government relations professionals from over 120 major U.S. corporations and trade associations.
On April 15th, Attorney General Brady has been invited to be a panelist at the Restoring Corporate Integrity and Public Trust Conference in New York City. Brady's panel, moderated by David Gergen, Director of the Center for Public Leadership at the Kennedy School of Government, will address the topic, "What are the New Rules of the Game?" This nonpartisan conference will bring together top business leaders, elected officials, investors, and academic representatives to discuss how to promote better corporate accountability and how to restore confidence in the nation's institutions and corporations.
