Berkeley Boosts Webinar | Investor Voices: BlackRock and CalPERS Discuss the 2021 Proxy Season as a Turning Point for ESG

Tuesday, July 13, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Following a year in which racial equity and climate change were at the forefront of investor dialogues with companies, leaders of two influential investment stewardship teams will discuss the significant shift in investor voting behavior in the 2021 proxy season. During this one hour webinar, Rob Zivnuska of PJT Partners will interview Michelle Edkins of BlackRock and Simiso Nzima of CalPERS to explore how they approached challenging policy decisions on environmental and social-focused shareholder proposals, executive compensation and director elections, and how investor expectations on ESG topics may evolve in the months ahead. Register here.
