2020 rocked our worlds for more reason than one, and it's had a profound impact on compensation structures globally. Whether it's short term incentives, long term incentives, equity incentives, or a mix thereof, the typical performance goals that we've seen for years are just not cutting it. Environmental, Social, & Governance (ESG) and Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DE&I) goals are being demanded by the stakeholders of every company: employees, shareholders, proxy advisory firms, etc. Join these ESG and DE&I advocates and enthusiasts for a look into how companies are incorporating these goals into executive compensation, including some tips and tricks for measurement, meaningful goalsetting, and the future of compensation programs in this evolving world.

Learning Outcomes:

• Learn how to structure incentive programs to capture the most important metrics to your company in ESG
