The Americas Institute will also feature the launch of WCD’s industry peer groups, bringing together directors who serve in the same industries, such as technology and cybersecurity risk. The groups are part of WCD’s expansion of its peer director communities, including the S&P 500 Directors Community and the Nominating and Governance (N&G) Chair Roundtable.

“The insights and networking that occur at the WCD Institutes are unprecedented, as women from around the world find a trusted place to discuss governance issues critical to global commerce,” says Camille Asaro, KPMG LLP partner and director of the WCD Foundation. “KPMG is proud to be the global lead sponsor of the WCD Foundation.”
