“Shareholders Push Nike for Greater Disclosure on Political Spending”


Investors are seeking greater transparency from Nike related to its political spending and putting a proposal demanding regular reporting on political contributions to a vote on Thursday.

The vote, at the company’s annual general meeting in Beaverton, Ore., comes a few weeks after the sportswear giant unveiled an advertising campaign featuring NFL quarterback-turned-activist Colin Kaepernick. The campaign led some consumers to call for a boycott of the company and others to buy more of its sneakers.
