Managing risk in Asia #3: the value of a diverse board

ESG has risen up the corporate agenda, driven by a combination of investor activism, government regulation, climate change, societal issues and shifts in the way companies think about governance.

In this episode, Teresa KoTim Wilkins, Keith Pogson and Ninette Dodoo compare board diversity initiatives in Hong Kong and the US and look at how each market is pivoting companies toward diverse boards and challenging companies to do better on this key governance metric.

The discussion covers the unique challenges facing Hong Kong, the actions being taken to improve board diversity and the key risks for companies that do not embrace change.
