Dambisa Moyo will join Colin Mayer CBE for a discussion of her latest book How Boards Work and How They Can Work Better in a Chaotic World, which looks at the role of corporations in the post-COVID economic recovery as they face de-globalisation and digitalisation. She reflects on how boards and corporations can successfully allocate capital and labour while navigating stakeholder trade-offs on issues of gender equity, race equity, climate change, inequality, data privacy and worker advocacy, to name a few.

The event will be hosted by Ngaire Woods, Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government.
