Advisory Committee on Investor Responsibility (2020-21)

The committee develops recommendations for presentation to the Yale Corporation concerning the voting of Yale’s stock shares at annual corporate meetings. In its broad outlines, the committee functions in accordance with the policies set by the Yale Corporation. More specific articulations of those policies were developed in the context of investments in South Africa during apartheid and more recently with respect to the voting of proxies on shareholder resolutions regarding tobacco.
