Dr. Christina Ahmadjian on “A Firsthand View of Corporate Governance Reform in Japan”
Dr. Christina Ahmadjian has been involved in Japanese corporate governance reform as a researcher, an activist, and most recently, an independent director of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Japan Exchange Group (the parent company of the Tokyo Stock Exchange) and Eisai. She will speak, based on her own experience, of the slow (and then suddenly, fast) evolution of Japanese corporate governance and the state of governance today. Dr. Ahmadjian will address key issues around Japanese corporate governance reforms including: Are the changes in Japanese corporate governance real or window-dressing? What makes a good board and a good independent director in the current Japanese context? What remains to be done?
