Income Inequality: Intra-Corporate Pay Gaps – Jackie Daitchaman, MSCI
Investor Strategies for Achieving Decent Work – Shannon Rohan, SHARE
Why Investors Profit More from a Propserous 99% than a Loaded 1% – Armine Yalnizyan, CCPA

 


Join the Shareholder Association for Research and Education (SHARE) for this half-day investor workshop to gain a broader understanding of the performance benefits for investors when the companies they invest in pursue a decent work strategy.

The session will also explore the investment risks associated with companies pursuing low-wage and precarious work strategies and propose opportunities for Canadian investors to address these risks by identifying key workplace performance metrics and seeking improved disclosure by companies on their approaches to labour practices and workforce management.

DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY to hear from other investors about their approaches and to share your own insights on the potential for investor-led strategies to improve corporate workplace practices in Canada.

The event is free of charge and designed for pension funds, endowments, foundations, religious investors as well as investment managers and consultants. Space is limited so register early and secure your place now.

  • Zeynep Ton, MIT Adjunct Associate Professor at the Sloan School of Management and Author of “The Good Jobs Strategy”
