Nell Minow, vice chair of the governance consulting firm ValueEdge Advisers, says that activists "want to ask a question to which the only good answer is 'we'll fix it.' " With technology companies under increasing pressure to hire and retain more women, "you can't have a better one" than a proposal that targets the pay gap, she says.
