UBC Sauder alumni, like Dr. Robert H. Lee of The Prospero Group and Heather Shemilt of Goldman Sachs, are helping shape the future of responsible leadership.
Three UBC Sauder Bachelor of Commerce alumni have been nominated for the YWCA’s 2017 Women of Distinction Awards, which seek to honour women whose “outstanding activities and achievements contribute to the well-being and future of our community.”
The Women of Impact seminar was hosted and presented by UBC Sauder’s Business Families Centre, which forms part of its series of interactive education seminars exclusively for members of family enterprises.
Women often take less formal roles in family firms as mediators, supporters and advisors, but research shows that this involvement is nevertheless critical to the ongoing success of both firms and families.
The more women on a corporate board the less a company pays for its acquisitions, according to a new study by researchers at the UBC Sauder School of Business.
