Charting Africa’s Future: The in-house role in the Sustainability & ESG era

11 June 2024, 09:00 – 10:00 BST, Online

This webinar is hosted as part of WIN (What In-house lawyers Need) and has been created around the feedback of our global community of in-house lawyers. WIN addresses the commercial and personal aspects of working as an in-house lawyer regardless of your location or seniority level. Register to join WIN to ensure you receive future invitations directly to your inbox.

In a landscape marked by rapid change, in-house legal teams have become pivotal in leading organisations toward a sustainable and responsible future.

Join the conversation as we explore the intricacies of this evolution. Our panel of GCs will discuss how they are seen as architects of change, actively propelling Sustainability & ESG strategies and balancing organisational risk. Discover how you can actively participate in reshaping your own organisation into a future-oriented enterprise, one that is not only legally sound but also socially responsible.

Explore the exciting Sustainability & ESG era and gain transformative insights, enabling you to excel as an in-house lawyer during this time of innovation and positive change.
