Presented by

Corporate Secretary & Morrow Sodali

About this talk

The 2021 proxy season was historic : US companies and investors witnessed record numbers of environmental and social shareholder proposals gain approval and record levels of support for proposals on topics ranging from board diversity to plastic pollution. These trends don’t appear to be abating and governance teams have a lot to keep their eye on and prepare for in proxy season 2022. Our panel of experts will share their insight on the key issues professionals need to understand during this dynamic part of the calendar. Topics for discussion include: • What are we seeing in the types of shareholder proposals filed and the types of companies facing them? • To what extent are companies engaging with investors on proposals and what best practices are they using to negotiate withdrawals? • Executive compensation is facing greater scrutiny. How can boards make sure those practices are in alignment with investor expectations this year? • What trends are being seen in terms of proxy statement content? • What role are activist investors expected to play in terms of targeting boards? • How is the SEC handling no-action requests for omitting proposals, given recent guidance?
