Tapestry is now exploring the formation of networks to address other important issues:
Consumer protection in financial services is receiving intense focus in the wake of the financial crisis. How can the industry enhance consumer protection creatively while minimizing adverse effects to product variety, availability, and innovation? Tapestry is seeking ways for regulators, product providers, and subject matter experts to address these issues collaboratively to achieve a positive outcome.
Policy-makers, corporate governance experts, and some institutional shareholders want to see closer communication between shareowners and boards. Yet viewpoints vary widely among the stakeholders. Tapestry is convening a group of institutional investors and non-executive directors to explore opportunities for productive board-shareholder engagement.
Postsecondary education in the United states faces considerable challenges. Tapestry believes there are opportunities for universities, government, employers, and non-profits to collaborate in new ways to address complex problems. Over the coming months, Tapestry will be working closely with diverse, interested stakeholders to define and launch this important multi-year initiative.
