ESGAUGE, in collaboration with The Conference Board, Russell Reynolds Associates, and Rutgers Law School, Release Russell 3000 Proxy Season Preview

January 28, 2021

The COVID-19 crises will define the 2021 proxy voting season, with a focus on human capital management, board diversity, transparency on corporate political activity, and the risks posed by climate change.

These are the key findings from the brand-new 2021 Proxy Season Preview and Shareholder Voting Trends (2017-2020), on which ESGAUGE has collaborated with business association The Conference Board, leadership advisory Russell Reynolds Associates, and the Rutgers Center for Corporate Law and Governance. The project builds on a multi-year analysis of corporate filings across both the Russell 3000 and S&P 500 indexes to provide insights for what’s ahead in shareholder voting. The report is complemented by an online dashboard where data can also be analyzed by business sector and company size group.
