Governance Minutes is produced by the Society of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals in collaboration with Corporate Board Member. The series features interviews with leaders in the governance field discussing issues such as executive compensation, board governance, disclosure and proxy drafting, shareholder engagement and annual meetings, to name a few. In this edition of Governance Minutes, Darla Stuckey, Executive Vice President and General Counsel of the Society hosts new Society President and CEO Stephen Brown to discuss what’s new at the Society, and how we can continually better serve our members. Brown highlighted the importance of shareholder engagement, which is ubiquitous if you believe all the recent discussion. However, he also noted that ultimate owners are now pressing their funds on ESG issues. He says we are only at the beginning stages of this phenomenon.
