Proxy Power: Voting for Workers

April 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have exposed fractures in our social, political and economic systems and have exacerbated inequities across the globe.

Recognizing the negative financial implications that these trends can have for investment portfolios; investors are paying greater attention to social issues, including workers’ rights, fair wages and racial justice. 

One of the ways investors are stepping up is by filing shareholder resolutions, with 2022 looking to be a record-breaking year for the number of shareholder proposals on the ballots of North American companies related to social and environmental issues.  

The CCSN invites you to join us at our popular Proxy Power Webinar, where we will examine key votes related to decent work in the 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) season, including at Loblaw, Mondelez, Dollarama and RBI. 

This webinar is for trustees, investment committee members and other institutional investors interested in using their voting rights to hold portfolio companies accountable for decent work outcomes in the 2022 proxy season.
