For the past two years The Aspen Institute has been extensively researching what executive pay looks like inside of companies large and small and how it may help define and reward excellence among individuals and executive teams leading from the front lines of business. Join lead researchers on the project as they share their findings and offer a holistic and common-sense perspective on executive pay at a time when societies demand it more than ever.
Michelle Greene has spent her career working at the intersection of the corporate, social and government sectors to make capitalism more inclusive and stakeholder-focused. She is the president emeritus and board member of the Long-Term Stock Exchange (LTSE), a new SEC-approved public market. Greene served at the US Department of the Treasury under two Administrations, including working on the government response to the 2008 financial crisis. More recently, as global head of corporate responsibility at the New York Stock Exchange, her work with dozens of leading corporations on their sustainability and ESG efforts convinced her that we need to change public markets in order to change capitalism. Greene has identified time horizon and stakeholder alignment as keys to transforming the way that corporations show up in the world. LTSE is creating a new public market that puts long-term value creation, including stakeholder engagement, at its core. Greene is an adjunct professor at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University and holds a J.D. from Harvard Law School and an A.B. from Dartmouth College.
