By Eve Tahmincioglu

Boards Can Balance Profit & Social Purpose

Influential corporate law judge Leo Strine discusses the role directors, investors and executives can play in curtailing income inequality and strengthening societal good.

In this exclusive video interview with Delaware Supreme Court Chief Justice Strine, he shares his thoughts on what directors can do when it comes to environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives; his take on Elizabeth Warren’s Accountable Capitalism Act; and he discusses how the movement to have more independent directors in the boardroom may have ended up undermining the gain-sharing between employees and top management.
