Racial Equity Audits, Culture Reviews and Environmental Justice Risk Audits—Why Do Them and How to Conduct Them

Webinar CLE

Join us for the second session in our webinar series addressing key environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues facing companies, boards, executives and investors.

During this program, WilmerHale Partners Debo Adegbile, Brenda Lee and Peggy Otum will discuss the increased focus on racial equity, corporate culture and environmental justice from regulators, shareholders and other stakeholders.

The panelists will also discuss noteworthy developments and topics, including:

  • the increasing number of shareholder proposals focused on human capital and other social topics;
  • trends in companies’ responses to shareholder proposals calling for equity audits;
  • the key components of equity audits, culture reviews and environmental justice risk audits; and
  • opportunities for differentiation in an increasingly competitive labor market.

During the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to contribute questions online. CLE credit will be provided.

*CLE credit is not available for those who watch a recording of the webinar.
