Shareholder Engagement

Shareholder Outreach and our Corporate Governance Cycle

Effective corporate governance includes regular, constructive conversations with our shareholders. We actively engage with our shareholders as part of our annual corporate governance cycle described below.

Annual corporate governance cycle

An important component of transparency is communicating governance policies and practices to all shareholders and other stakeholders. With over 4.2 million Microsoft shareholders, both direct dialogue and ‘one-to-many’ communications are necessary to provide the scale to reach all shareholders.

Shareholder Outreach

Independent members of our Board and members of senior management conduct outreach to a cross-section of shareholders owning approximately 45% of our outstanding shares. Our CEO, Satya Nadella, remains committed to investing time with our shareholders to maintain transparency and better understand their perspectives, including by participating in our quarterly earnings calls and other forums.

Director Video Series

Our director video series provides all stakeholders with insight about our Board. The series features interviews with members of our Board and provides an informal opportunity for our directors to discuss their own approaches to their role as a director at Microsoft.

Microsoft On The Issues

We regularly post policy blogs on Microsoft on the Issues, covering topics ranging from the latest in corporate governance and corporate social responsibility to privacy, cybersecurity, online safety, jobs, and education. Follow the Microsoft on the Issues blog via social media handles @MSFTIssues and @MSFTNews.
