Investor perspectives and racial justice

Board and committee effectiveness, Boards and General Management, Investor perspectives on public companies

Compensation Committee Leadership Network, July 2020

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the rapid rise of a movement in support of racial justice combine to make the work of boards and their compensation committees as important and challenging as ever. During a June 26, 2020 virtual meeting, CCLN members were joined by Tanya Levy-Odom from BlackRock’s Investment Stewardship team for a discussion about the implications of the pandemic on a range of compensation and governance issues. Separately, members shared perspectives on the board’s role in combatting systemic racism.
