A key focus of our Shareholder Engagement team is helping companies understand and connect effectively with institutional investors and proxy advisory firms. What better way for us to stay connected with the governance community than to be an active CII member?” -- Laura Wanlass, Partner & Corporate Governance Practice Leader, Aon

“CII pulled off the trifecta at its recent spring conference—high-level speakers with useful insights, high-level attendees with excellent networking opportunities and meaningful exposure for our sponsorship.”
--Michael Jantzi, CEO, Sustainalytics
