The session will start by discussing the background of ESG stockholder litigation. It will conclude with a roundtable discussion concerning the issues involved with ESG stockholder litigation and the outcomes of ESG stockholder litigations from the past few years.

The theme of this year's Educational Forum, Sharing Solutions in Sun City, invites attendees to share their knowledge and insights on public fund management and investment issues while enjoying the relaxed and historic atmosphere of El Paso. TEXPERS' Educational Forum takes place Aug. 21-23, 2022, at Hotel Paso Del Norte, 10 Henry Trost Ct., El Paso, TX 79901.
