Shareholder Engagement Initiative Call Q4 2023

November 8, 2023 | 1 pm ET

The Shareholder Engagement initiative focuses on supporting colleges and universities in utilizing their power as shareholders to engage portfolio companies across issues related to social justice and the climate crisis. There are several forms of shareholder engagement that endowments can pursue to address material investment risks, improve corporate sustainability performance and support policies that move us toward an equitable, low-carbon, and regenerative economy.

They include proxy voting, engaging in dialogue with mutual funds or companies held in the portfolio, filing or co-filing shareholder resolutions, and signing on to public investor letters or statements. This call featured a presentation from As You Sow's Andrew Behar and Kaylea Noce.

To join this initiative contact Nicole Torrico, Managing Director at [email protected].
