Join Pearl Meyer and the NACD on our May 18 webinar to learn how compensation can play a role in developing and sustaining a culture of innovation.

Given the new administration in Washington and the impending changes to the SEC, some corporate governance rules and disclosure requirements are unlikely to have the same support. We have already seen some requirements under review and potential repeal-- such as those requiring CEO pay ratio disclosure. However, even if regulations change, shareholders are likely to continue to encourage companies to provide substantive disclosure on issues such as company efforts to promote positive social and environmental changes. For example, in his annual letter to S&P 500 CEOs, Blackrock CEO Larry Fink emphasized the importance of corporate stewardship at this time of uncertainty. Fink called on corporations to craft long-term strategies that address the changing global environment, including pay inequity, environmental and social issues, and retirement insecurity for an aging population. State Street also put a spotlight on corporate stewardship in its annual letter to companies in which it invests, urging boards to increase disclosure on their strategic approach to climate change and other key social issues and risk. Most recently, State Street threatened to vote against directors at companies that lack a woman on their board. Join us for this important discussion about how this environment will impact how companies do business, and how their boards need to balance the pressure from shareholders with the changing rules coming out of Washington, and the impact on overall strategy going forward.
