Closing the Diversity Gap | Practical Tools & Insights for Investors

Join Investor Economics and ISS ESG for a virtual roundtable on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, at 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET.

Beyond the obvious association with the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 will also be remembered as the year which put a powerful spotlight on the “S” in the ESG investing acronym. Events in the U.S., which rapidly spilled into Canada and beyond, have sparked a global conversation about the need for companies and investors alike to take bold steps towards closing the diversity gap. ISS ESG has engaged in the conversation by driving a highly publicized initiative urging U.S. companies to disclose the ethnicity of directors and senior executives. Although many recent headlines have focused on ethnic diversity, a holistic understanding of diversity is required to successfully manage the associated risks and opportunities.

What can we glean from the US data sets? Which types of diversity data are available to investors? How is diversity assessed for equities and fixed income? How can diversity data be used in practice to support various investment initiatives and strategies (e.g. product development, engagement, proxy voting, etc.)? And, importantly, what unique Canadian perspectives do we need to explore to empower the diversity and inclusion dialogue for Canadian investors?

Join Investor Economics, ISS ESG, and distinguished guests for a highly interactive webinar on the practical tools and insights available to investors who want to take steps towards closing the diversity gap. *A full agenda and speaker list will be provided closer to the date.

This event is for ISS ESG and ISS MI | Investor Economics clients and prospects only.
