    Event Summary:
    Shareholders become activists when they use their influence as owners and lean on the board to make certain changes. This practice, known as shareholder activism, has significantly increased and the strategies deployed by activists have continued to grow in recent years. Investors are continuously seeking to intervene into company management to progress their own agendas, which is commonly procuring board changes.
