Join us for the second installment of our two-part introductory Mintz ESG webinar series. ESG — environmental, social, and governance — criteria are becoming increasingly central to the evaluation of investment options, corporate actions, and corporate performance. As a growing number of companies and investors embrace ESG, it is evolving to encompass a broad spectrum of societal developments that shape shareholder interests. Some of these issues include environmental sustainability, the economic, community, and health effects of the coronavirus pandemic, the increased focus on gender and racial equity in board composition, and the call for racial justice — both in the boardroom and throughout corporate America.
In this webinar, members of Mintz’s multidisciplinary ESG team and Silda Wall Spitzer, CEO & Publisher of New York Makers, will explore ESG principles as value-creation vehicles through social impact investing and diversity and inclusion in the C-suite and boardroom.
This session will cover:
- How social impact investing is linked to business purpose and creating both investment and social value
- How emerging legal issues are affecting environmental and social impact investing
- How statutory initiatives and mandates aimed at regulating gender and racial balance for board composition and social justice–related derivative litigation impact board governance
- How corporate diversity, inclusion, and equity initiatives influence ESG metrics
