Event description

Description

AGM activism is a unique campaigning strategy that gets you in a room with the CEO's of the biggest companies. You ask a question to the board and they take action.

It's a winning tactic. Intertek – a huge global company that tests and certifies products accredited to the Living Wage Foundation in June and said it was the direct result of our AGM questions. Since we started campaigning on the Living Wage at AGMs in 2011, the number of FTSE100 companies paying a fair wage has jumped from 2 to 36! And 3 years ago, bus company National Express changed its unfair wheelchair policy as a result of an AGM question.

Any campaign issue that is geared towards company action can use AGM activism as a tool. Come along to this training for disability rights campaigners to:

· Learn about what AGMs are

· Learn about what AGM activism is and why its so powerful

· Get trained to be an effective AGM activist

· To plan using AGM activism at upcoming AGMs for disability rights and access campaigning

The venue has stepfree access and accessible toilets and is a short walk from Waterloo station which has stepfree access.

Please contact michael.kind@shareaction.org if you have any particular access requirements.
