This survey by the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and Diligent explores current board practices and attitude for diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I). What goals and tactics are boards implementing?
Institutional investors who’ve embraced Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) principles now perceive greater value when boards include minorities and women. Most businesses employ a diverse workforce and serve diverse customers; these stakeholders want senior leaders who know their world and represent them. A diverse board generates an array of perspectives that brings strength and balance to decision-making. Studies show that diversity correlates with strong financial performance.
While organizations have made some progress toward gender diversity in the boardroom, there is much more to be made. Why has progress not happened more quickly, and what can business leaders do about it?
Current events – including escalating racial and political turmoil — demonstrate the importance of diversity and inclusion in a rapidly changing world. Consequently, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles have boards considering their companies’ impacts on employees, customers, and the communities in which they operate.
