Director Notes: Maximizing the Benefits of Board Diversity

June 2020 | Governance Matters

This Director Note provides practical suggestions on how boards can maximize the benefits of board diversity by recruiting demographically diverse directors who also improve cognitive differences in the boardroom.  It also recommends that boards work diligently to ensure that the culture in the boardroom welcomes diverse perspectives and incorporates them into the decision-making process in order to make sure that they obtain the full benefits a diverse boardroom has to offer.
