Black Sun Partners with The Institute of Directors

Black Sun will partner with the new Institute of Director’s Centre (IoD) for Corporate Governance to improve governance through stakeholder dialogue.

The Centre focuses on improving governance through stakeholder dialogue, exploring current issues in corporate governance, company stewardship and ESG – for the benefit of the business community and wider society.

Black Sun’s Chief Insight and Engagement Officer, Sallie Pilot has also joined IoD as a member of their Stakeholder Governance Working Group – exploring approaches for a more inclusive and purpose-driven stakeholder mode, which have been gaining traction against the prevailing shareholder-primacy model.

Sallie conducted several interviews with group of board evaluators, corporate governance consultants, and two members of the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) which formed the basis of a thought leadership paper she co-wrote for the IoD. Titled, “From intention to Action: Board Effectiveness and Stakeholder Governance”  the report explores this group’s insights and discusses the areas that boards would be advised to focus on to become more effective decision makers in relation to stakeholders.

Black Sun will be partnering on the first of the Centre’s series of ‘How To’ webinars which will deep dive on some of the findings from the paper to consider who is responsible for driving the stakeholder agenda within each organisation with an expert panel.

Sallie Pilot said, ‘We are delighted to be partnering with the IOD to encourage collaboration, debate, and mutual understanding of the increasingly important relationship between organisations and their stakeholders and the role of Boards and governance. We are looking forward to exploring how organisations can foster greater dialogue between their stakeholders to ultimately drive better decision-making and better run businesses.

Black Sun and IoD are committed to helping inform board-level decision making, ensuring investors and other stakeholders are assured the Board have the skills and experience necessary to promote the success of companies and drive long-term value.
