Ron O’Hanley, the John L. Weinberg Distinguish Speaker, speaks at the Symposium hosted by the Weinberg Center
On March 7, 2017, the John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate
Governance at the University of Delaware was honored to host Ron O’Hanley,
President and CEO of State Street Global Advisors (SSGA), as its John L.
Weinberg Distinguished Speaker. SSGA is a recognized leader in corporate
governance. He gave an inspiring talk as part of the Center’s 2017 Corporate
Governance Symposium. Mr. O'Hanley discussed SSGA’s focus on effective,
independent board leadership and his recent call on boards to consider ESG
impacts on long-term value creation. He discussed board diversity and
SSGA's call on companies to increase the number of women on their corporate
boards, which was announced earlier in the morning and which was also on the
eve of International Women’s Day (March 8). Mr. O’Hanley also spoke about
the historic comprehensive stewardship and governance principles recently
issued by the Investor Stewardship Group.
