Alexia Rosenthal participates in the 2023 Global Institute conference as a member of the Argentine Chapter of Women Corporate Directors in New York  

As a member of the Women Corporate Directors (WCD) - Argentina Chapter, TCA lawyer Alexia Rosenthal participated in the Private Equity - Venture Capital Boards & the Path to a Board Seat panel, in which panellists discussed the characteristics that a Director should have in companies invested by Venture Capital and Private Equity Funds.

The panel was part of the 2023 Global Institute, a two-day conference in New York City that gathered more than 200 corporate board directors, executives, and leaders from around the globe.

Alexia focused on the low representation of women on LatAm Boards, but, in turn, shared interesting examples in various industries, such as #Biotech in LatAm, in which funds are prioritizing the participation of women in Boards highlighting their vision of purpose, sustainability and social impact.

The Global Institute conference covers a comprehensive discussion on timely corporate governance issues, convened board directors, CEOs, chairpersons, and leaders worldwide.
This year’s theme, Inspiring Visionary Boards During Transformative Times, featured discussion panels on economic challenges, insight into leading through transformative times, the power of AI, engaging a diverse workforce and more.

Headlining this year’s keynote sessions were Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, CEO of MCC Productions, LLC and contributor to CNBC; Edie Weiner, CEO and President of The Future Hunters, and Yelena Meleyev, Senior Economist at KPMG US; among a roster of speakers from companies such as Blackstone, the U.S. Spaceforce, Google and Lockheed Martin.

Also, during the two-day conference, WCD hosted the 12th annual Visionary Awards, which is an evening that honors companies or individuals who exhibit an exceptional corporate commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the c-suite and boardroom.

Leading this year’s keynote address at the Visionary Awards was Elizabeth King, President of ICE ESG & Chief Regulatory Officer of Intercontinental Exchange.

"Women Corporate Directors’ Global Institute brings together board and c-suite executives during these transformative times", said Jennifer Reynolds, CEO of Women Corporate Directors. "Gathering leaders from around the world provides the space for a candid and insightful discussion on the issues, challenges and opportunities facing boards around the globe", she added.

This year’s honorees represented the most geographically diverse group of recipients in the organization’s 20-year history.

Karen Mitchell Curran, Managing Partner, Ft. Lauderdale, KPMG and Lead Director, WCD Foundation, said: "KPMG is pleased to be the presenting sponsor of the 2023 Global Institute and Visionary Awards. The Women Corporate Directors Foundation plays a vital role as an advocate for gender diversity on corporate boards and as a provider of governance education. We look forward to sharing the insights of KPMG professionals on topics such as AI and disruptive technology, succession planning in the finance function, and an update on the state of the economy".
