Join The Conference Board Governance Center, Cleary Gottlieb and Vanguard for an important discussion about the increasing pressures on companies for short-term performance rather than creating long-term, sustainable value for shareholders and stakeholders.  Activism, quarterly earnings, executive compensation design and changes in the capital markets that favor trading over investment all play a part.  Our panel will discuss how short-termism is jeopardizing the future prosperity of business and what actions can be taken by boards, management, investors and policy makers to rebalance business toward a longer term view.  

Who Should Attend:  Senior business and investor executives from the legal, audit, risk, and governance functions.
