ECGI Community

The ECGI Community is an engagement and collaboration members-only platform open to all those with an interest in corporate governance. It is an independent platform for sharing knowledge, best practices, articles, announcements, events, ideas and for communicating with other members of the ECGI community (individually or within groups). 

The ECGI Community platform serves as a noticeboard, discussion forum and collaboration platform for the ECGI network.

We welcome contributions on:

  • Conference and workshop announcements on corporate governance and related topics
  • Corporate governance news and announcements
  • Corporate governance questions (e.g. "I am looking for empirical evidence on voting power concentration in Europe, can someone please send me a reference?")
  • Selection of textbooks and other teaching material for corporate governance courses
  • Books and/or papers you have read and you would like to comment on
  • Occasional promotion of your own publications and working papers
  • Ideas relating to research questions, availability of data, project suggestions

House rules and tips

What is the ECGI Community?

In this group members can share information, calls for papers, announcements, event details, job postings, requests, ask for advice, schedule group meetings, search for details on a specific member and interact with other members across the ECGI Community. All posts and replies are connected/grouped and structured so that you can have a focused conversation on a topic and not just a flow of messages. Plus, posts and comments are searchable so you can refer back to past discussions and questions.

IMPORTANT content guidelines

All communications should be relevant to corporate governance and of value to the other community members. All communications in the group should be written in a way that provides more context to members who would read them. They should be brief, inviting to read and should encourage readers to respond. The following suggested information should be provided in the body of your message:

  • Current Organisation

  • Current Role

  • Current Location

  • Purpose for your post

  • Link to longer text if necessary (please refrain from posting long passages of text on the community feed). It is also possible to attach documents to your post.

Promotion of work: As general guidance and to reduce the perception of ‘spamming’, one email per month is suggested as a limit for a member promoting their own work. 

Promotion of events: Emails about events should be limited to events that are clearly related to corporate governance. Other events will be removed.

Sharing Content: Articles should include something that states why the article is relevant, and members should be encouraged to include comments / questions, etc. There should be a clear reason why this article is being shared with the broader group.

The following types of content should not be sent out:

  • Unapproved requests for donations/fundraising.

  • Emails requesting capital/funds for a project.

  • Repeated emails for self-promotion (typically, one email per month is allowed for a member promoting their work)

  • Repeated emails (eg. one member shares an article and a number of days later the article is shared again).

  • Members who repeatedly violate our policies regarding posting will be removed from the Mobilize platform.

Is the community a private group?

The ECGI Community is open, meaning that all community members can view its contents. It is also moderated which means that messages may be deleted or refused by community managers if deemed inappropriate.

Does it cost anything to sign up?

Subscription is free. However, you must be a member of ECGI to join the Group. To view messages posted on the ECGI Community and to post them yourself, you need to join the Group on the Mobilize platform. Click here for the registration form.
