Compliance Week and Bloomberg Law include comments by Valeska Pederson Hintz about the Securities and Exchange Commission’s decision to approve rule changes proposed by Nasdaq that require Nasdaq-listed companies to disclose information about their board’s diversity. Pederson Hintz tells Compliance Week: “All U.S. public companies, Nasdaq-listed or otherwise, should be paying attention to what investors do with the data disclosed as a result of Nasdaq’s board diversity rules. If they don’t want to fall behind the curve, they should act to address diversity concerns before that data is used against them.” In Bloomberg, she adds that the new rules will give investors “access to an arsenal of information on board diversity that they can use to analyze the issuer, compare it to peers, and apply pressure.”
