Bob Monks is a well-recognized scholar and world leader in the fields of shareholder responsibility and corporate governance. Brutally candid yet witty, Bob is powerful in his ability to distill complex settings into nuggets of knowledge and is constantly deciphering the developments of our day.

Bob will speak about the unique responsibilities of universities and charities as they manage donor funds. His talk is derived from his latest book, Citizens DisUnited, about the increasing influences of corporations, and the related relative decline in individual power, in American society.
