Walmart Inc. will hold its annual shareholders business meeting in a live audio webcast starting at 10:30 a.m. today.

As with last year's meeting, today's is being held virtually in light of the covid-19 pandemic.

The Rev. William J. Barber II, a civil-rights leader, will address Walmart's board of directors at the invitation of the worker advocacy group United for Respect. Group leader Cynthia Murray invited Barber to speak after she filed a shareholder resolution calling for the board to create a Pandemic Workforce Advisory Council.

Shareholders can attend the meeting and cast their votes online using instructions provided in the Bentonville-based retailer's annual proxy statement. Shareholders of record as of April 9 are eligible to vote.

The public may also listen to the meeting through a link on the company's corporate website. A transcript of the event will also be available.

The meeting agenda includes voting on the 12 board nominees; a resolution approving Walmart's executive officer compensation; and four shareholder proposals, including Murray's.
