    Are the days of the unassailable protection of the Business Judgment Rule over when it comes to outside director accountability as the US District Court for the Northern District of California held in in re Wells Fargo & Company Shareholder Derivative Litigation ruled in 2017? This case was part of a trend stretching back many years warning that directors who, as one judge wrote, take an "ostrich-like approach" to oversight, may be held to violate their fiduciary obligations. What are the new ESG responsibilities of directors when corporate purpose goals are moving beyond shareholder profit? In addition, boards and C-Suite personnel face increasing public exposure and perhaps legal and regulatory risk, if their companies are seen as complicit in child slave labor or other labor practices that violate international norms and laws. This panel will examine these risks. Learn what these issues portend for outside director liability, responsibilities of directors and the C-Suite to set the ESG tone for the company, potential effects on directors' willingness to serve and how directors and the corporations on whose boards they sit can manage these risks and new responsibilities.
