Also earlier in the year, Professor Wade co-taught a session on “Enhancing Professional Conduct in the Financial Services Industry” sponsored by FINRA’s Institute for Executive Education at The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.

In October, Professor Wade presented a paper on shareholder activists’ impact on corporate diversity efforts at a symposium on Corporate Ethics and Compliance in the Era of Re-Deregulation sponsored by The Institute for Law and Economic Policy and Loyola University Chicago School of Law’s Institute for Investor Protection.

In November, Professor Wade presented her article entitled Corporate Lawyers and Diversity Discourse, published in the Journal of The Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession at the New York City Symposium on the State of Diversity and Inclusion. The Symposium takes place annually and gathers diversity and inclusion professionals from corporations across the nation. The 2017 symposium at which Professor Wade presented was sponsored by and took place at the offices of Morgan Stanley.

Also in November, Professor Wade collaborated with a group of economists, bankers, commercial law judges, lawyers and actors on a project about financial sector regulation. After participating in a year-long effort to create a production that presented, explained, and explored pertinent issues in the aftermath of the 2009 economic downturn by using the arts, Professor Wade travelled with the group and participated in the performance and presentation of their collaboration. The project was funded by a grant received by the Peter Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia and included participants from UBC and Oxford University. Professor Wade participated in presentations at Oxford University, The Inns of Court in London, The University of British Columbia, and at The Symphony Space Theater in New York City.

Professor Wade will participate on a panel on The Personification of the Corporation at the 2018 American Association of Law Schools’ Annual Conference in January.
