October 13, 2020
In this episode of S&C’s Critical Insightspodcast series, Marc Treviño, co-head of the Firm’s corporate governance practice and managing partner of its executive compensation group, discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic and other recent events may increase the prevalence of human capital proposals submitted by shareholders following the 2020 proxy season. Marc explores why more companies are likely to adopt or expand public disclosure on human capital management next year in response to growing pressure from investors and regulators. He also outlines changes to expect for specific categories of human capital proposals, including those related to diversity, arbitration and social capital.
