Board Diversity & Inclusion: Moving from Optics to Meaningful
Insights & Best Practices From Board Chairs, Directors, and CEOs.
Diversity and Inclusion are important trending topics for boards – and rightly so. Diverse board composition not only reflects shared social values, but also makes a significant, measurable contribution to the effectiveness of boards across all sectors and industries.
Boards that diversify their composition in a meaningful way have distinct advantages, but little guidance or best practice advice exists for leaders seeking to address this sensitive topic in their organizations.
Watch board governance experts Matt Fullbrook and Robin Cardozo as they share learnings and insights drawn from their experience and through interviews with more than two dozen leaders, including board chairs, board members, and CEOs.
In this session, participants will learn:
- Essential elements for a successful diversity and inclusion strategy.
- What does meaningful diversity and inclusion looks like in practice
- D&I guidance, insights and best practices synthesized from real-world board leaders
