The Yale School of Management is pleased to announce its partnership with the Forté Foundation, a new non-profit organization established to increase the number of women in business education and business careers, by increasing the flow of women into key educational gateways and business networks.
During the school year, many of Yale SOM's faculty members will be examining issues relating to corporate governance from many different angles. Professor Sharon Oster will present the third lecture in the full-year series at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 10 in the GM Room.
This past year, we have seen problems of failed corporate governance not only at publicly traded companies like Enron and World Com, but at nonprofits like the United Way of Washington DC. In fact, given the absence of a take-over market and the complexity of the product of most nonprofits, the role of governance in insuring good performance is heightened among nonprofits.
Starting in October, the Library page on CampusNet, (http://www.som.yale.edu/ssl/) will feature a new electronic product each month. Instructions for using the product of the month will be offered during Librarian Office Hours, every Wednesday and Thursday between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., in A32. Of course, other research questions are also welcome during these hours.
