About the Event
 
With the goal to advance our collective thinking on shareholder engagement, the organisers will present a virtual workshop on ‘New Frontiers of Shareholder Engagement’ on 14 October 2021, which will will bring together leading scholars from three continents to discuss, in an interdisciplinary perspective, some pressing corporate governance issues, such as institutional investors’ stewardship and commitment to environmental and societal objectives, collective engagement, the resurgence of retail investors and their power to bring business corporations to pursue ESG goals.

The virtual workshop will explore the institutional and retail investors’ engagement with corporate governance by placing emphasis on the expectations that citizens lay in their investments and in the corporate sector from both a financial and an ESG account. The  workshop will be divided into two sessions, during which scholars will discuss their work, also allowing questions from the audience.
