Are We Failing Our Shareholders?

The latest news and insights from Global Women landed in inboxes today. Don’t worry if you missed out, you can see this month’s email and sign up for the next issue below.


Our newsletter this month focuses on the topic of board diversity. The value of diversity of thought and approach is so well-evidenced that it begs the question: if we fail to ensure diversity on our boards, are we in fact guilty of failing the business and shareholders we have been appointed to serve?

In this issue we offer insights and practical tips to address diversity around boards. Be sure to read our one-on-one with outgoing chair of Spark, Mark Verbiest on how to recruit for and retain a diverse board.

Plus, we get stuck into the thorny question of targets and quotas as a means of accelerating diversity. We would love to hear your thoughts on this debate: join the conversation on LinkedIn.
