News + Events : Professor Denise Kleinrichert co-authors chapter in a new book about corporate boards and risk management

08/27/2009

Denise Kleinrichert, Ph.D., management department, and Anita Silvers, Ph.D., chair, philosophy department, are the co-authors of the last chapter, “Risk Disclosure and Transparency: Toward Corporate Collective and Collaborative Informed Consent,” in a new book, Corporate Boards: Managers of Risk, Sources of Risk (Loyola University Series on Risk Management), (Eds) Robert W. Kolb & Donald Schwartz (Wiley-Blackwell Publishers).

Corporate charters empower boards with an important role in managing risk, but recent events have also shown that the members of these boards can also be sources of risk. Corporate Boards: Managers of Risk, Sources of Risk deals with the highly timely topic of the Corporate Board and its relationship to risk, both in terms of its management and its creation.

The work presents a multi-disciplinary perspective, including contributions from the areas of economics, management, law, finance, business ethics, and corporate social responsibility. Topics include the role of corporate boards in overseeing increasingly complex risk management techniques, managing corporate boards to control the risk that their activities impose on the firm and on society, and the ethical dimensions of corporate board behavior in managing risk and imposing risk on the firm’s various stakeholders.
