María Hernández, Managing Partner of the Compliance Practice area at Eversheds Sutherland Nicea, Chair of the Compliance Committee of the Latin American Alliance of Eversheds Sutherland International, and Academic Director of the Master in Global Corporate Compliance, has been selected as a member of the B20 Integrity and Compliance Task Force. The B20 is the official channel authorized by the G20 to engage in a dialogue with the business community and the private sector.
The main objective of B20 is to support the Group, made up of the world’s 20 leading global economies (G20), by offering recommendations informed by a small number of carefully selected experts from every field (such as economics, law, business, and so on).
“It is a great honor to be part of this exclusive task force, whose recommendations will be presented to the G20 and will, consequently, have a direct impact on the way business is done at the international level.”
The Integrity and Compliance task force aims to move forward with the global anti-corruption agenda, touching upon topics like regulatory compliance, transparency, and high standards of ethical conduct and integrity. Within companies, these recommendations materialize as initiatives that involve the protection of human and labor rights, environmental conservation, consumer protection, and fighting corruption.
“It is a great honor to be part of this exclusive task force, whose recommendations will be presented to the G20 and will, consequently, have a direct impact on the way business is done at the international level. I hope that my experience will allow me to make a helpful contribution, and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to work with and learn from the other prestigious professionals in the group,” explained María Hernández, who was selected on account of her internationally renowned career as a legal advisor to large multinationals.
This year’s G20 summit will be held in Saudi Arabia, bringing together a task force consisting of no more than 100 people from around the world.
