Diversity Discussion Guide for Directors
In light of new global trends and business imperatives, the need for diversity of experience, background and perspective has become an important board mandate. Boards have a responsibility to prepare for the future of their organizations and to take the strategic actions necessary to meet shifting stakeholder demands and adapt to the rapidly changing environment in which their companies compete. This tool—a discussion guide by the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD)— intends to help boards in the earliest stages of conversation about board diversity. Initially published in the NACD Report of the Blue Ribbon Commission on The Diverse Board: Moving From Interest to Action, it can help jump-start a healthy, helpful dialogue. This guide can also be helpful to boards that have already begun discussing diversity but need to refocus their conversation.
