Investing is key to long-term success

October 2021

The long-term sustainability and success of large companies depends on a variety of factors, many of which are influenced by the actions of boards and their compensation committees. Recent events, including an eventful proxy season, a prolonged pandemic, and a shortage of skilled workers, have caused boards to prioritize their companies’ long-term approach to social and environmental issues. In September, CCLN members convened for two separate sessions to discuss these and related issues.

On September 14, 2021, CCLN members met with Yumi Narita from the New York City Comptroller’s Office and Maher Colaylat from State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) to delve deeper into governance and pay issues. On September 30, members were joined by Guild Education CEO Rachel Carlson and Rock Central chief learning officer KimArie Yowell for a discussion on upskilling the workforce.
