Executive and Director Compensation Trends and Issues

The Women Get On Board Virtual Speaker Series focuses on emerging issues and trends that board members need to consider in their board roles. An effective board is critical for companies to navigate these turbulent times. We face internal and external challenges and new opportunities, from diversity and inclusion, hybrid workplaces, ESG, globalization, geopolitical issues, cybersecurity and data privacy, shareholder engagement, uncertain economic conditions and talent alignment. Our expert guest speakers will discuss strategies and provide insights on how boards can be more effective.

Event Description:

Leveraging Southlea's research on the latest trends amongst the S&P/TSX 60 companies across Canada, this session will explore the findings in terms of compensation levels, incentive design and other governance features. We will share insights from the recently completed compensation and disclosure cycle highlighting perspectives from various stakeholders, including key institutional shareholders and the proxy advisory firms. We will highlight the key topics to have on your agenda as you review potential compensation changes for the upcoming year.
