Bloomberg Lawon the New Conference Board/ESGAUGE Study of Board Practices

Bloomberg Law published today an article on board turnover that discusses findings from the brand-new Corporate Board Practices in the S&P 500 and Russell 3000: 2019 Edition, a comprehensive benchmarking report published by The Conference Board and ESGAUGE.

The research was conducted [by The Conference Board] in partnership with environmental, social, and governance data-mining firm ESGAUGE,” wrote Andrea Vittorio of Bloomberg Law.
