London Met lecturer made President of international conference

Dr Samuel O Idowu takes over the presidency at this year’s Global Corporate Governance Institute annual conference.

Date: 22 November 2021

From 8 to 10 June 2022, the Global Corporate Governance Institute (GCGI) will hold its annual conference in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with Dr Samuel O Idowu, Senior Lecturer in Accounting, teaching Accounting and Corporate Social Responsibility, acting as its new President.

GCGI’s mission is to overcome the variety of limited perspectives, outworn doctrines, tired prior agendas, and vested interests affecting the world. It brings together global scholars and practitioners from different fields, along with leaders from various sectors, to form a global alliance, dedicated to rethinking and integrating sustainable values and ethics into management practice, education, and development. 

Dr Idowu said: “Taking over the Presidency of the GCGI from Professor Capaldi is one of the greatest honours of my life.  Professor Capaldi remains the CEO of the organisation which means life will not be too difficult for us. Baton Rouge 2022 will be my first conference as the President, and we hope many of our colleagues from London Met will be able to join us.”

The GCGI also has a thriving book series with Springer International, titled: CSR, Sustainability, Ethics and Governance Book Series. Springer also publishes GCGI’s academic, The Journal, the International Journal of Corporate Social Responsibility, in which it publishes the best papers submitted to its conferences as well as other important articles on corporate governance.
