What Makes a Board Effective?
Why do some Boards populated by captains of industry seem to fail at basic tasks and others with few corporate skills appear to effortlessly build great organisations?
We believe that it all comes down to getting a few things right: join us to talk about effectiveness of the Board around 3 pillars– people, process, tools.
Diversity and Inclusion are important trending topics for Boards – and rightly so. Diverse board composition makes a significant, measurable contribution to the effectiveness of boards across all sectors and industries.
Getting the right diversity across gender, skill, experience, profession, location, age, tenure, nationality, culture, and risk appetite is important. It must be supported by people with shared values and vision, processes that deliver the information needed for excellent decision-making, and tools that allow directors confidence they can access and use the data available.
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 organisations.
Join the discussion on Thursday 1st July, 12pm AEST, when our guest Julie Garland McLellan and OnBoard experts will share learnings, insights drawn from their experiences and best practices
Meet The Speakers
Julie Garland McLellan
CEO of The Director's Dilemma
As an experienced board director with current directorships, an international expert on corporate governance and a corporate governance advisor to mid and small-cap boards, Julie champions the cause of directors required to shoulder enormous responsibility on a shoestring budget. Government sector, mid/small cap and not-for-profit boards need tailored solutions, not cut down versions of programs designed to fit large, listed boards.
