She also looks at how effective stewardship has led to very recent changes in the investment industry, as well as the future trajectory of this area. 
Overview

Even if the topic at hand never actually comes up for a vote at the AGM, responsible stewardship can be effectively carried out through participation in the proxy voting process. The collective power of shareholders cannot be understated, change will only ever happen in a company if a large proportion of shareholders support it.

Responsible stewardship has proven to be the most efficient way for shareholders to hold companies accountable for their actions on ESG issues, ultimately creating a better and more sustainable economy.
