Digital Transformation & Green Transformation Webinar Series

The term, "VUCA," signifying volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity accurately describes the current general state of world affairs. Corporate executives must nevertheless navigate these realities and make appropriate decisions that benefit their stakeholders. In the midst of this, two transformations that business strategies need to account for, referred to as the digital transformation ("DX") and "green" transformation ("GX") are underway. We find these two trends are top-of-mind issues for boards, and increasingly, regulators and the public. White & Case will provide a series of live and recorded short-form webinars throughout 2022 hosted by Senior Advisor Arthur Mitchell and featuring global industry experts and firm partners, who will outline the risks and opportunities presented by these transformations through a variety of subject matter lenses.

This series is designed for senior executives who need to familiarize themselves with the latest trends in DX and GX from a broad, high-level technical, business and regulatory perspective.
