We formed Better Boards out of a conviction that diverse corporate boards have the power to make the world a better place, creating more equitable workplaces, thriving communities and a fairer society.
To capture the best practices of boards that capitalize on diversity, we interviewed 100 corporate directors – 50 men, 50 women, 40% people of color in line with the U.S. census. These thought leaders shared best practices on inclusion, recruiting, onboarding, board dynamics and leadership. They also shared insight on the growing impact of boards in a time of ESG and a more stakeholder driven approach.
We draw upon our extensive board governance, leadership development and coaching experience informed by both experience and our ground-breaking research. We coach aspiring and new board members to contribute from day one. We consult with boards to create the culture and systems for better organizations and a better world. Our research is the foundation for:
- Broad-based awareness and education
- Board and candidate development programs focused on women and people of color
- Consulting to support diversity initiatives
- Coaching of first time and aspiring directors
