4th Annual Virtual Roundtable on Shareholder Engagement

Time: 3:00 PM EDT

This year’s focus is on how to navigate the difficulties of a shareholder profile and political environment where factionalism in favor of and against ESG initiatives, ranging from social and cultural matters to sustainability and governance sensitivities, poses tremendous risks for the ability of a corporation to pursue its mission, focus strategically and optimize stakeholder relationships.
