NEW YORK, Jan. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The pandemic, racial protests, conflict attending the recent Presidential election, and ongoing concerns about the environment will help to define the upcoming 2020 proxy season, further accelerating trends that have been building over the past few years.
Released today, 2021 Proxy Season Preview and Shareholder Voting Trends (2017-2020) builds on a multi-year analysis of corporate filings across both the Russell 3000 and S&P 500 indexes to provide insights for what’s ahead in shareholder voting. The report is complemented by an online dashboard where data can also be analyzed by business sector and company size group. The project was conducted by The Conference Board and ESG data analytics firm ESGAUGE, in collaboration with the leadership advisory and search firm Russell Reynolds Associates and Rutgers Center for Corporate Law and Governance.

This project explores the role of industry or trade associations in governance, both within and across borders. The aim is to create a forum for practitioners, regulators, and academics across disciplines to discuss the how and why of associations’ engagement in governance activities, ranging from informal standard setting to participating in international law making efforts. The project also examines the opportunities and challenges that arise as a result of involving associations in governance, at both national and international levels. Those interested are invited to attend (and organize) conferences in support of the project and to contribute to the Center’s working paper series on industry associations and transnational governance. The faculty contact point for this project is Prof. Sarah Dadush (email@example.com).
