There is immense opportunity to create impact through shareholder engagement in public equity investments. The scale and influence of such a mainstream asset class make it tremendously important to be able to spot opportunities to engage as shareholders. On this panel, you will hear from students, faculty, and industry professionals as they discuss how, through working with their institution's endowment, utilizing student-managed investment funds, and participating in extracurricular activities, they are impacting corporate behavior through shareholder engagement. Examples that will be discussed include drafting proxy voting guidelines, co-filing a shareholder resolution, and participating in a student competition focused on engagement.
