March 9 Event: A New Paradigm for Corporate Governance?

Posted on

Thursday, March 9, 2017  |  4:30 PM – 6:30 PM
Vanderbilt Hall, Room 210
40 Washington Square South New York 10012


What does a “corporate governance” paradigm do?  What role does it play in board governance?  What role does it play politically?  Do we need a new paradigm and, if so, is this it?  How does it differ from current practice?


Martin Lipton ’55 has been urging the adoption of a “New Paradigm” for Corporate Governance that derives from the recognition by corporations, their CEOs and boards of directors, and by leading institutional investors and asset managers, that short-termism and attacks by short-term financial activists significantly impede long-term economic prosperity.  In essence, the New Paradigm recalibrates the relationship between public corporations and their major institutional investors and conceives of corporate governance as a collaboration among corporations, shareholders and other stakeholders working together to achieve long-term value and resist short-termism.
