Episode Description

As the benefits of gender equality for governance become more apparent, boardroom diversity initiatives abound. But, these efforts have not translated to the gains in gender diversity one would expect. Corporations persistently object to state mandates. In the absence of state regulation, how can we make these initiatives translate into measurable outcomes? Can institutional investors play a role in implementing change? In this episode, my guests Professors Darren Rosenblum and Anat Alon-Beck will join us to discuss their work on board diversity, which asks whether fiduciary duties can be used to motivate institutional investors to play a role in ensuring equality.
