Enterprise Risk Management (“ERM”) has gotten attention from Corporate America for roughly 20 years, and we’ve seen some early successes. Join us on May 15, 2018 at the Temple University Fox School of Business for a conversation about the future of ERM. Come hear experienced ERM practitioners speak to lessons learned and early wins for their ERM programs; other presenters will introduce the audience to innovative ERM capabilities, made easier today by emerging technologies and new management disciplines.
