Companies, and in particular boards, can no longer rely on ad hoc interaction with proxy advisory firms to “check the box” on stockholder communication on governance issues. This panel will address the evolving landscape of stockholder engagement in light of increased profiles of institutional governance departments. What are best practices for board and company engagement with stockholders? How can the company proactively think about topics of particular attention, such as proxy access, board diversity and tenure, exclusive forum bylaws, director nominations/elections and executive compensation?
