Feminism and Corporate Law: Reforming Corporate Governance Roundtable

The Minnesota Journal of Law & Inequality (JLI) co-hosted a virtual Roundtable on Feminism and Corporate Law: Reforming Corporate Governance with the Institute for New Economic Thinking on July 24, 2020. JLI‘s faculty advisor Prof. June Carbone, Robina Chair in Law, Science and Technology was one of the organizers of the Roundtable. Eight legal scholars across the nation and the globe presented six cutting-edge research papers on the intersection of Socioeconomics, Competition, Race, Gender, Law & Inequality and addressed the role of internal corporate competition in exacerbating economic, gender, and racial inequality. Each presentation was twenty-five minutes each, divided as five minutes of presentation and twenty minutes of open commentary. Each paper was assigned a dedicated commenter who would make some remarks, allow the author to respond, and then open it up to general discussion. The Minnesota Journal of Law & Inequality will publish papers from this Roundtable as part of Issue 2 of Volume 39, Issues 1 and 2 of Volume 40, and in Inequality Inquiry. The Roundtable was not open to the public. If you would like to learn more or follow up on these topics, please contact Prof. June Carbone at feminismcorporations@gmail.com.
