Two of the most well-known companies around will be in the hot-seat on Wednesday.
Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is reportedly presenting the findings of his investigation into widespread sexual harassment and discrimination issues at Uber to its board on Wednesday, according to Axios. The investigation began after a former engineer for the ride-hailing company, Susan Fowler, detailed her personal experiences with sexual harassment at Uber in a February blog post.
The company that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson used to run, ExxonMobil, will likely feel the heat from investors at its annual shareholder meeting on Wednesday. Several institutional investors, including BlackRock (BLK) - Get BlackRock Inc. Report and Vanguard Group, are pressing the super-major oil company to adopt a more transparent policy about its business prospects under stricter environmental rules.
Exxon is, unsurprisingly, urging shareholders to vote against this proposal. Reutersreports that the company has also stepped up its efforts to persuade investors to vote its way with a "campaign of calling, writing and lobbying shareholders in person." The same proposal only received 38% of the votes last year.
Notably, Exxon added atmospheric scientist Dr. Susan Avery to its board in February following much criticism regarding its response to climate change.
Shares of ExxonMobil were declining slightly before the bell Wednesday.
