Free Webinar: How to use your position as a shareholder to change corporate behaviour - Wednesday May 27th, 5pm AEST

If you own shares in a company then you can have a say in what that company does.

The ACCR works with shareholders to channel their ownership powers toward making companies more responsible and transparent.

If you own shares in listed companies, are interested in corporate democracy or want to find our more about the work of the ACCR, join us for a webinar with our Executive Director Brynn O'Brien and head of Shareholder Engagement Emma Batchelor.

The webinar will start at 5pm AEST, Wednesday May 27th. It is hosted on Zoom.

Register for the webinar

In this webinar Brynn O'Brien will discuss how the ACCR, together with 100 registered shareholders, puts shareholder resolutions on issues like climate change, political lobbying, decent work, and human rights to Australian companies.

Following this, Emma will provide practical information on:

  • Making use of your power as a shareholder
  • Registering and updating your shareholdings with the ACCR
  • Letting your friends and family know about our work

Let us know if you have any questions about the running of the event by emailing recruitment@accr.org.au.
