ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE

Assisting Crowns with developing approaches to address impeding challenges in a post-pandemic world.

Attend CI’s 18th Annual Conference on Crown Corporate Governance and achieve the highest-level knowledge and practical solutions to obstacles and challenges impeding on Crowns today. Our speaker faculty is comprised of leaders from the public sectors, federal and provincial crowns, and academia will impart their deep knowledge to assist Crown Corporations in this post-pandemic world. We have created this year’s agenda to include more interactive formats to enhance session content as well as your overall conference experience.

Questions surrounding Environmental, Social Governance (ESG) expectations are becoming more significant as more Crowns adopt more climate-resilient standards.

International ESG standards continue to evolve as there is greater pressure to operate sustainably. Learn about multiple ways to establish ESG Frameworks, how to achieve targets, and the role of Board members as decision makers in ESG implementation.

Ongoing and increasing public demand for greater diversity and inclusion standards are changing Crown Corporate practices and behaviours.

Public perception demands that Boards and public agencies have representation that reflect the demographics of the people they serve. But how is this being achieved? Join us as we delve into actionable recruitment initiatives, practical human capital metrics, crisis communication, and critical Equity, Diversity and Inclusion policies.

As many companies — including Crowns — restore their functions back to a pre-pandemic world, many have chosen to adapt hybrid models to achieve their purpose and goals.

Join us as we explore the next stage of evolution for Crown workforces and leadership. Gain insights on maintaining secure policies to balance work from home and a return to the office, based on your Crown Corporation’s needs. Understand what’s next on the horizon for Crowns as they make this shift in a post-pandemic world.
