2nd Corporate Governance Research Symposium
Hosted by the School of Accounting, Faculty of Business and Law, Curtin University.
Monday 24 June 2019, 9.00am – 6.00pm
Building 407.205, Curtin University (Bentley campus)
The need for effective corporate governance transcends all disciplines and sectors of business. The significant corporate governance failures highlighted by the recent Financial Services Royal Commission Report has resulted in a heightened sense of concern about existing governance practices both in Australia and abroad. Deficiencies in corporate governance have adverse consequences not only in corporations but also across other parts of society, including aged care and sports. To discuss existing practices in corporate governance and the academic research this area, the School of Accounting invites you to engage with industry leaders and academics from other disciplines and universities.
The event will commence with keynote presentations from:
- Professor Fran Ackermann on the “Collaborative and multi-stakeholder corporate governance”
- Professor Alan Duncan on “Corporate governance policies related to gender equality”
- Professor David Gilchrist on “Charities, Is purpose related to corporate governance?”
In addition to initial keynote speakers, there will also be a number of additional research presentations on the interdisciplinary nature of corporate governance and a panel event on “Corporate Governance in the Disruptive Era: Challenges from Social Media, Information Security and other Digital Technologies”.
The event will also build on the strategic alliance between Curtin and The Business School at the University of Aberdeen. Mark Whittington from the Aberdeen Business School will provide symposium attendees with an update on the governance research occurring at Aberdeen and the opportunities for cross-university research. The symposium will end with a networking session.
