How the SEC Is Making it Harder To Exclude Shareholder Proposals and What This Means for ESG This Proxy Season

Skadden Podcast / The Informed Board

Marc S. Gerber Ann Beth Stebbins Dalia Blass, Gabrielle Wolf

Ahead of the 2022 proxy season, the SEC shifted its approach to shareholder proposals and permitted companies to exclude far fewer shareholder proposals from annual meeting agendas. Skadden M&A partner Ann Beth Stebbins leads a discussion about the impact the SEC shift had last year, particularly with respect to ESG proposals, and what we can expect this year. She is joined by Dalia Blass, BlackRock’s head of external affairs, Gabrielle Wolf, a director at shareholder advisory firm Innisfree M&A, and Skadden partner Marc Gerber.
