Broadening board diversity is good corporate governance
Having more women and people from diverse ethnic and skill set backgrounds serving as board directors has real and measurable benefits for the health of your organisation.
There are many networks that specialise in non-executive director recruitment, including the SIRDAR Group, whose aim is to “guide boards of directors to reach new heights”. But it’s also useful to speak to other advisers, such as recruiters and management consultants, about board diversification. Many larger practices often run their own NED networks and can help find suitable board candidates.
