Human Rights on the Ballot at Google

Alphabet’s AGM will see shareholders vote on 10 proposals, including pay equity, sustainability and human rights risks--but it's looking like an uphill battle with the board.


Today the shareholders of Alphabet (GOOG), Google’s parent company, will meet for its annual general meeting, where yet again, shareholders will put forward proxy resolutions to bring up for a vote. This year, there are 10 shareholder proposals up for vote, ranging from a push for equal shareholder votes to requests for reports on sustainability metrics, to gender and racial pay equity, and human rights-related risks.
