Trends in 2020, not surprisingly, show that public companies have an increasing focus on social purpose, equality, workforce welfare and diversity. These trends and the SEC’s new human capital disclosure requirements are having an impact outside the core SEC disclosure space on corporate governance, human resources, executive compensation design and investor relations.

Join our multidisciplinary panel of Hunton Andrews Kurth partners for a wide-ranging discussion of the year-end agenda, including: 

  • New SEC rules requiring disclosure of human capital measures or objectives 
  • Evolving proxy disclosures regarding Board diversity and director qualifications
  • An overview of shareholder proposals on diversity reports and company responses
  • The legal framework surrounding D&I initiatives, including employment discrimination laws
  • Institutionalizing D&I and creating effective programs
  • Governance and Board oversight relating to D&I policies and practices
  • D&I metrics in executive compensation, and the role of Compensation Committees


  • Melinda Brunger, Partner
  • Emily Burkhardt Vicente, Partner
