Making Corporate Culture a Priority


NEW YORK, November 17, 2017 — RANE (Risk Assistance Network + Exchange) and Sullivan & Cromwell LLP today announced that the 2017 Sullivan & Cromwell/RANE Risk Management Summit will take place on December 7, 2017, in New York City. The event is sponsored by Dow Jones Risk and Compliance.

Research and real-world experience suggest a healthy corporate culture can be leveraged as a tangible risk management tool that can help firms spend smarter and be more responsive to current and growing regulatory requirements.

The 2017 Sullivan & Cromwell/ RANE Risk Management Summit will bring together corporate executives, leading experts, regulators, and practitioners to discuss what drives a healthy corporate culture and best practices for creating and maintaining that culture.

The sessions will focus on understanding how companies can best prepare for these exposures in advance, in response, and in repair:

  • The business case for making culture a top priority: key lessons learned
  • The psychology of culture: why good people do bad things and the role of corporate culture
  • Best practices for creating and maintaining a healthy corporate culture

The summit will include keynote presentations by John F. W. Rogers, Executive Vice President, Chief of Staff, and Secretary to the Board, The Goldman Sachs Group L.P. and H. Rodgin Cohen, Senior Chairman of Sullivan & Cromwell LLP.
