The Clapman Lecture honors the life and contributions of our dear friend Peter Clapman, who passed away in February 2021. During his long tenure leading the governance team at TIAA-CREF, Peter helped to establish many governance norms that are now considered to be standard business practices, pushed for corporate reforms such as board independence and greater board diversity and served as Chairman of the International Corporate Governance Network. A pioneer in his professional life, Peter was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. The annual Clapman Lecture will seek to illuminate the history, challenges and complexity of corporate governance topics through the voices of leading members of the issuer, investor and corporate governance communities.
