How Sharon is building a better working world

"With social contracts in turmoil and trust at an all-time low, the concept of legacy and leaving a positive impact for the next generation is more relevant than ever. Organizations are swiftly transitioning from focusing primarily on the needs of shareholders, to a stakeholder-centric view. At EY and the Global Center for Board Matters we encourage board directors to think holistically about the critical role they play in challenging traditional views, embracing new ideas and driving value for the long term of the organizations they serve and ultimately, the organization’s stakeholders and broader society."
