Yes, “Diversity & Inclusion” Disclosures

Our guests – Skadden Arps’ Brian Breheny, Uber’s Keir Gumbs, Vinson & Elkins’ Sarah Fortt and Mayor Brown’s Candace Jackson – tackle a range of “D&I” disclosure topics, including:

  1. What disclosures are required by the SEC? What does the Nasdaq’s proposed board diversity standard look like?
  2. What types of disclosures are investors looking for? Which investors are leading the charge for D&I disclosure?
  3. Do the proxy advisors have a position on D&I disclosure?
  4. To begin to craft this type of disclosure for the first time, what questions should you be asking to get a strategy together?
  5. What are the frameworks, the standards, out there that folks can look at to get ideas?
  6. What do the proxy / 10-K disclosures already out there look like / where within the 10-K & proxy might this disclosure be located?
  7. Who should be on the disclosure team for this?
  8. Should interested investors – your larger shareholders – be involved in reviewing a draft of the disclosure?
  9. Where might this type of disclosure be made outside of SEC filings?
  10. What about board oversight? Where should that lie? Should committee charters be updated?
