Board and Workforce Diversity: Enterprise Risks, Opportunities, Rewards
August 14, 2013
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Today’s buzz: Diversity. Inclusion now covers race, age, gender, religion, impairments, skills, viewpoints and more. How will it benefit your company? The experts speak. Paul Albert, Albert Investments: “Outstanding women directors I know would rather see the primary emphasis on their qualifications to contribute, with their label as a woman irrelevant to their board nomination.” Nola Masterson, Science Futures Management: “The pressure to fit in or ‘lean in’, as the current crowd likes to quote, is a problem for a well-run board.” Brian Barnier, ValueBridge: “Too often, risk management does more to put blinders on than take them off. Board diversity can help take blinders off to more easily see risk in the business.” Nicole McCabe, SAP: “It’s not about whether a diverse board will positively impact the business. It’s whether that board can be inclusive enough to take advantage of the business benefits.” Join us for Board and Workforce Diversity: Enterprise Risks, Opportunities, Rewards.
