Professor Marc Parlange

Professor Simon Wilkie

Monash Business School’s Centre for Global Business (CGB) is delighted to announce a new initiative, the International Consortium for Values-Based Governance (ICVG).

The ICVG examines governance in the institutional context. It advocates values-based governance as a necessary substitute to the "one-size-fits-all" approach that has dominated governance research, practice and policy to date.

To launch the ICVG,  Professor Colin Mayer, an internationally renowned governance expert and Peter Moores Professor of Management Studies at the University of Oxford will present a special webinar, ‘Towards a values-based approach to governance’.

Professor Mayer, who is the Peter Moores Professor of Management Studies at the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford, will discuss limitations to the traditional notion of governance and advocates a values-based approach as a potential way to address these challenges.

This event will be hosted by Monash University Provost, Professor Marc Parlange and Head of Monash Business School, Professor Simon Wilkie.

Moderator will be Associate Professor Deirdre O'Neill, Affiliate of Better Governance and Policy at Monash University and course director of the Master of Public Policy.
