Diversity at ECGI

Not everyone has the same opportunities in the practice and study of corporate governance. As a global network with European origins, ECGI is striving to make the field more accessible and the practice more common for people of all backgrounds. We would like to do more. Please think about supporting us on this journey.

"ECGI allows me to stay connected to a global network of academics and professionals in corporate governance and related fields. The Institute facilitates access to to leading research from scholars in finance, accounting, and law, among other disciplines.
