Making Business Decisions with Care in the Context of the Global Compact

Wednesday, February 12
Noon to 1 p.m., Room 230 Main

Presenter: John Cameron, J.D., assistant professor, management and organization

Corporate boards are afforded broad discretionary judgment in formulating company policy, business practices and operating procedures. Yet, business judgments can have profound global consequences. Board performance is measured in part by the duty of care standard. What are the essential elements of this duty of care?  Learn the ways in which the directorial duty of care is interpreted in the context of a Global Compact.

John C. Cameron, J.D., assistant professor, management and organization, has served in various capacities on the boards of corporations and has held executive leadership positions. His interests include corporate compliance and ethics, corporate leadership and corporate/health care law.  Currently, he is the chair of the Pennsylvania Bar Association Health Care Law Committee,
