Apple shareholders reject board diversity plan

The Guardian:

Apple shareholders have overwhelmingly rejected a proposal that would require the board of America’s largest company to adopt an “accelerated recruitment policy” for minorities among company leaders.

This is the shareholder proposal that Apple opposed in January, formally failing. Apple opposed the proposal on the grounds that it was “unduly burdensome and not necessary because Apple has demonstrated to shareholders its commitment to inclusion and diversity.”
