Are you aware of your legal responsibilities as a director?

Are you aware of your legal responsibilities as a director? In the complex and fast-changing environment boards find themselves in, company directors must be legally literate.
Regardless of whether the organisation is a not-for-profit or ASX listed, there are core legal responsibilities that underpin sound corporate governance, culture and behaviour.

Leading legal academic, Dr Kath Hall, has partnered with Women on Boards to provide a workshop introducing the key obligations of board members of commercial, NFP and incorporated organisations in Australia.

Case study based and incorporating the latest updates, the workshop is suited to new and emerging directors, and a great update for current directors.

This popular foundational workshop covers:

  •  up-to-date information on board roles and responsibilities
  •  practical information on directors' duties
  •  a check-list of possible "red flags" and
  •  detailed discussion (via a case study) on board responsibility around ESG.
