The Becker Friedman Institute for Economics at the University of Chicago (BFI), in partnership with the Chookaszian Accounting Research Center at Chicago Booth, brought together leading scholars for academic exchange on recent developments in corporate governance research and the role of governance in ESG. Understanding the role of corporate governance is important as companies grapple with balancing the desire to address ESG-related challenges and other, more traditional demands faced by firms.
For each paper, the format was 20 minutes for the presenter, 10-15 minutes for the discussant, and 10-minute open questions from the audience.
All times are listed in CST.
