Contemporary Governance Risks: Starting from the Top

GovernWith’s CEO & Founder Fi Mercer concludes our discussion series on the key contemporary governance risks at the boardroom table; Gender Equity, Social Inclusion and Climate Change. Fi wrapped up this series by discussing what we’ve learnt about these three key topics. Fi also discussed with Founder of 6peas, Carolyn Grant, her research with Boards and Executives about psychological safety and how this impacts on discussions and decision making which effects how we can set the tone from the top.
