State Street Announces Enhancement to Gender Diversity Voting Guidelines

On September 27, 2018, State Street announced an enhancement to its board gender diversity voting guideline. Starting in 2020 in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia, State Street intends to vote against the entire nominating committee if the company does not have at least one woman on its board. The requirement will extend to Japan, Canada and continental Europe in 2021. The State Street announcement is available here.
