Education is a core part of ICGN's mission to inform members about key developments in corporate governance and investor stewardship.  

ICGN's formal training began with an award from the European Commission in 2011 to develop the first in-person programme on how to integrate ESG factors in investment decision making. ICGN's ESG course has been presented successfully since 2012 and has now evolved more broadly into a course on investor stewardship, while keeping a strong focus on ESG and sustainability. 

ICGN's Academic Days have been linked to conferences since 2014 and provide ICGN members a opportunity to dialogue with the academic community, to discuss governance research from both academic and practitioner perspectives.
