The landscape of shareholder proposals continued to evolve during the 2019 proxy season. While the overall number of proposals declined, certain issues received strong support and environmental, social and political proposals passed in record numbers. This webinar will cover recent developments in shareholder proposals from the 2019 proxy season, trending shareholder proposals for the 2020 proxy season, and the mechanics and strategies for addressing them. We will also discuss the impact of the SEC’s recently adopted guidance affecting the role of proxy advisory firms and the status of other pending regulatory initiatives relating to shareholder proposals.
