Obtain behind-the-scenes knowledge on how investors and proxy advisory firms (ISS & Glass Lewis) evaluate stock plan proposals. In addition to summarizing key aspects of ISS’ new Equity Plan Scorecard approach, you'll also gain key insights into the “Black Box” approach taken by Glass Lewis.

Further, we will explore the growing number of non-ISS / Glass Lewis compliant programs companies are pursuing the past two proxy seasons.

We hope you leave the presentation understanding how you can work to maintain and maximize the flexibility your equity compensation programs while still obtaining majority approval of the share request size and design that you ultimately need.
