Board diversity has never been a hotter topic. Our colleagues from our US partner firm, Diversified Search Group, their CEO Dale E. Jones and Managing Director Lauren Smith have just published an article with the National Association of Corporate Directors emphasizing that boards should be value-added assets to companies and diversity is a key dimension. Dale and Lauren showcase the success stories of three of our Fortune 500 clients and highlight three actionable tactics for companies to diversify their boards:
- Expand how you think about the value that new board members can bring.
- Build bridges to engage candidates and be prepared to address what’s on their minds.
- Speed up your process and be nimble and decisive.
