Proxy Season 2022 | Women in the Boardroom

Recorded Webinar

Proxy Season 2022

Proxy Season 2022 promises to be like no other. Two years into the pandemic and with no definite end in sight, all industries and companies have been affected, often in very different ways.  Proxy advisors have come out with new guidelines, and large holders like State Street have emphasized their continuing stance on ESG issues, and boardroom diversity in particular, which has also been the subject of increasing regulations by Nasdaq and others.  Our panel of experts will discuss how these disparate forces may affect how boards navigate this year’s proxy season.
