Shareholder advocacy |

Webinar video is now available


Creating real-world change is hard.

Corporate engagement isn’t about angry letters or “throwing your weight around.” It’s about putting your shoulder into solving some of the world’s most challenging, most important problems. It isn’t easy. It isn’t quick. But it is good, hard, HOLY work. And it is work best done in community.

In this webinar, Chris Meyer, Praxis Stewardship Investing Research and Advocacy Manager, shares stories and insights from more than 15 years of corporate engagement.

Chris provides a deep dive into the fascinating, thoughtful, hard work of creating real-world change through shareholder advocacy. From understanding complex social issues and competing economic forces to identifying the right partners and strategies that can lead to lasting success, discover the many steps required to bring a company to true transformation.
