The SFU Centre for Corporate Governance and Sustainability, the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), and SHARE (Shareholders Association for Research & Education) invite you to attend a special learning and networking event on the topic of “Sharing Prosperity: The Role of Investors in Addressing Inequality.”. The unequal distribution of economic benefits across society has become a headline political and economic issue. Investors continue to express concern that high pay leads to risky behaviour and oversized rewards for a few while stagnating standards of living built on low pay strategies are undermining economies. This dialogue event will explore how long-term investors such as pension funds are grappling with the challenges of economic inequality and addressing the opportunity of shared prosperity.

Open to the public, the event begins at 6:00 pm with a networking reception and the program begins at 7:00 pm. Please register on the website for your complimentary ticket.

The CPA Innovation Centre invites you to a research presentation by Johann Peter Murmann, Professor of Strategic Management at the AGSM - UNSW Australia Business School. One key focus in his research has been the development of the synthetic dye industry from 1850 to current times. Drawing on six cases of private start-ups in the Chinese synthetic dye industry, he identified eight types of knowledge that flow through entrepreneur-incumbent networks during the foundation of start-ups and explore how and why variation in the knowledge obtained produces significant differences in start-ups’ long-term performance.
