WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The following statement is attributable to California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) Director of Corporate Governance Anne Sheehan:
“While CalSTRS is disappointed Trian did not prevail in their bid to seat a slate of nominees to the DuPont Board of Directors, we are encouraged by the changes Trian Partners have driven at the company. DuPont has acted on many of Trian’s early recommendations and, as partners with Trian, we are prepared to work from the outside toward long-term growth in collaboration with the board.
CalSTRS is administered by a 12-member Teachers’ Retirement Board. The board sets the policies and makes rules for the system and is responsible for ensuring benefits are paid by the system in accordance with law.
The CalSTRS Teachers’ Retirement Board includes three member-elected positions representing current educators, an appointed retired CalSTRS member, three appointed public representatives, an appointed school board representative and four members who serve in an ex-officio capacity.
