“Leading the Brussels office allows me to meaningfully contribute to building corporate responsibility and a viable regulatory framework for the future of European business.”
Paige heads the work of our Brussels office in the areas of corporate governance, company law, business and human rights, and public affairs. She and Filip Gregor are responsible for the Purpose of the Corporation Project, which seeks to connect business, policymakers, academia and civil society to create a new vision of the governance of publicly listed companies based on more than maximizing short-term profits and share price.
