    The last year has seen considerable attention focused on the growing demands from institutional investors for companies to make new ESG-based disclosures. Amid the focus on environmental and governance issues, there has been less discussion of social issues. But more investors are looking for disclosure in this area, and one of the key challenges for companies and their IR teams is deciding on and delivering the right data.

    In this webinar, a panel of industry specialists will examine what investors want to know, and how IR practitioners can ensure their company is telling the right story in the most effective way.

    Speakers will address topics and questions such as:

    • How well are companies delivering the information investors seek – and what can they do to improve their performance?
    • Faced with a range of indices and requests for different types of data, how can IR teams decide where to focus their efforts?
    • How can you turn the qualitative nature of many social issues into numbers?
    • How can IR teams best leverage their ‘E’ and ‘G’ efforts in the ‘S’ space?

    The panel includes:

    • John Cummings, senior vice president of investor relations, Salesforce
    • Moderator: Ben Maiden, editor, IR Magazine
