Investors today expect better performance and reporting from companies on environmental and social issues. Companies are facing shareholder proposals, litigation and divestment for failing to promote diversity on their boards, failing to protect employees from sexual harassment in the workplace, failing to reduce their carbon footprints to address climate change, and more.
Join our panel of leading practitioners for a discussion about the latest trends in shareholder activism on environmental and social issues in Canada and the US. Hear about the implications for your practice and your clients.
Following the panel, continue the discussion and network with colleagues in breakout sessions.
- An update on the Capital Markets Modernization Task Force report and recommendations
- The #MeToo movement and driving corporate culture change through sexual harassment class actions
- Litigation and other initiatives aimed at improving diversity on boards
- Shareholder proposals, regulation and litigation concerning environmental and climate change issues
