How can you ensure the success of your BRG? What can you do to make it credible, business aligned and supported right up to CEO level? The key is a strong Governance Model and solid engagement from active executive sponsors. Thomson Reuters is willing to share how they have used this framework to build and strengthen their BRG “Pride at Work” since its inception in 2010. Hear from the Global Leadership Team leading their BRG as well as their executive sponsors – they will explain how governance can be used as an enabler for your BRG credibility but also how essential it is to have committed executive sponsors acting as passionate ambassadors for your BRG.
