One of the fastest growing areas of risk for companies stems from the changing expectations of corporations from key stakeholders (their consumers, customers, employees, shareholders and civil society). Stakeholders view corporations as citizens, and there are expectations that the corporations engage in the world as responsible and ethical citizens helping to solve the challenges facing our communities, the nation and the world. How has a weaker government shifted the role of corporations? How are millennials and employees impacting the dialogue? What happens when companies fail to meet new expectations? How are companies meeting expectations and even embracing social risk? Using a compelling, real-life business example, this session will discuss the impact of conducting a social risk assessment with core values in mind, as well as highlight the import of building a plan.

The world has and will continue to change. In fact, the one consistent element seems to be the existence of risk. In today’s fast paced information dump, knowledge is realized in real-time. How do companies address the impact of known risks and keep vigilant of risks not yet known? How do companies embrace risk and mitigate risks – those percolating just below the surface of discovery – all the while making decisions that honor the core values that define the culture of the organization?

Conversation starters,

When embracing risk within an organization, what is the power of the many voices in a global economy? How do organizations embed their core values in making decisions while hearing the challenges that cultural diversity elicits? How do companies foster goodwill with the younger generations that thirst for impactful change with social impact? This session will allow participants to take a deeper dive into this subject after the morning plenary.

Conversation starters,

Ann Hengel, EVP and chief risk officer, Bremer Financial Corporation

Stephen Zawoyski, US Enterprise Risk Management leader, PwC
