  • Changes in overall perception and reaction on violence and harassment in the workforce.
  • Board responsibilities for leadership in workplace culture
  • The board’s role in crisis response to allegations of harassment
  • What if your board is the problem? How to deal with individuals who are “untouchable

The Governance Professionals of Canada (GPC) was created in 1994, shortly after the Dey Report was published by the TSX on ‘Where Are the Directors’. GPC‘s mandate is to be the voice of governance professionals in Canada. Its members deal with all matters affecting corporate governance, from board and committee processes, management and structure, disclosure, stakeholder engagement, legal and corporate compliance, as well as issues crucial to boards, their accountability and oversight.
