A critical need for inclusive leadership, shifting US demographics, and US investor pressure have increased the focus on diversity in the C-suite and on public company boards. What benefits could gender, racial, and ethnic diversity bring to boardroom discussions? We’ll discuss:

  • The current landscape of women and minorities on Fortune 500 boards.
  • Perspectives from the market, investors, activists, and legislatures impacting the demand for more diverse boards.
  • Mechanisms being created to track and measure progress on board diversity.

Participants will learn key findings from the 2018 board diversity census and how diversity of perspectives can help companies meet the challenges they face today and in the future.
