environmental, social, & governance Speakers

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is often viewed as just sustainability and investments, but it’s much more than that – and includes a host of areas ranging from workforce diversity and inclusion to supply chain, operations, customer integration, and community imprint. The urgency for organizations to implement better ESG practices that ensure they are operating in a way that is responsible and conscious is greater than ever. However, many either don’t acknowledge the need or don’t have a clear path forward, leaving them out of sync with employees, competitors, and customers. A thoughtful ESG strategy can help attract top talent, boost business performance, ensure regulatory compliance, and even future-proof your organization. WSB’s expert ESG speakers can help you create an effective strategy, explain how ESG trends will impact your industry, what the risks are, and the opportunities that will come from it.
