Given the expected high level of continuing activity relating to financial regulation in Congress and the Trump Administration, CII plans to hold monthly teleconferences on this topic. The purpose of these standing 30-minute calls is to: (1) share information with CII members on current financial regulatory developments and related CII advocacy efforts; and (2) coordinate, to the extent possible, CII advocacy efforts on financial regulation with those of CII members and other interested parties.
This month’s guest speaker was Professor Cynthia Williams, Osler Chair in Business Law, Osgoode Hall Law School, York University. Professor Williams discussed an innovative new petition to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission pulling together the different strands of ESG disclosures that some have advocated for at the agency into a single request for rulemaking.
CII Members can access a recording of this call in CII's Media Archive.
