Office Depot has been named as a “Top 50 Company for Executive Women” by the National Association for Female Executives for the eighth consecutive year. The listing recognizes U.S. companies that move women into top positions and which create a culture that identifies, promotes, and nurtures successful women executives. During 2010, Office Depot’s women executives earned 36 percent of all promotions to senior level management, and 41 percent of those to director or senior director.

Investors face a mix of social and environmental shareholder resolutions in the upcoming corporate meeting season, according to Proxy Preview 2012. The new report says that nearly a third of the shareholder resolutions ask companies for more disclosure about their direct and indirect campaign spending and lobbying. Proxy Preview 2012 offers a review of 350 resolutions on a range of topics, including political spending, climate change, and labor and human rights. This year’s report is a collaboration between As You Sow, a nonprofit that promotes corporate responsibility; The Sustainable Investments Institute, which conducts research on social and environmental shareholder proposals; and Proxy Impact, a proxy voting service for socially responsible investors.
