JOIN US THURSDAY, OCTOBER 28 as we unveil the key themes and findings from our innovative research on best practices of gender and racially diverse boards. Better Boards Initiative, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was formed out of a conviction that diverse corporate boards have the power to make the world a better place, creating more equitable workplaces and a fairer society. To capture the best practices of boards capitalizing on diversity, BBI interviewed over 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 board leadership. They also shared insight on the growing impact of boards in a time of ESG and a more stakeholder driven approach.
