Webinar – Proxy season 2020: Governance lessons learned and what they mean

Presented by

Corporate Secretary and EQ

About this talk

Tuesday, July 14, 2020 8.00 am PDT / 11.00 am EDT / 4.00 pm BST / 5.00 pm CET Duration: 45 minutes Proxy season 2020 has taken place amid unprecedented turmoil. In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic and accompanying economic and social challenges, companies have been battling to stay operational and afloat while boards and governance teams seek new ways to meet investors’ needs for information and engagement. Among other things, many companies have switched to holding virtual AGMs. Despite early predictions that the crisis would distract investors from ESG-related issues, the opposite has become apparent, with a series of significant shareholder votes at those AGMs. Meanwhile, companies and investors have been navigating a new regulatory roadmap for getting such proposals on the proxy ballot. Our panel of experts will explore these and other developments to highlight key lessons for general counsel, corporate secretaries and governance professionals from the 2020 proxy season and how they can be applied in the future.
