Board boost...June 2013
Answering calls for specific steps to boost women’s representation on boards worldwide, WomenCorporateDirectors and its Global Nominating Commission has unveiled a roadmap for decision-makers: “Improving Diverse Representation in the Boardroom.” The 14-point roadmap was introduced as part of WCD’s third annual Global Institute, held recently in New York. “Having a series of concrete steps that multiple stakeholders can take to improve diversity is the kind of work we’re doing that’s not about rhetoric, but about action,” says Susan Stautberg, ceo, co-founder, and global co-chair of WCD.
“We need to move together to create corporate governance as it should be – for it will take all of us. Diverse boards that are multi-gender, multi-skilled, multi-national, multi-ethnic, and multi-generational can make a difference around the table, in the world, and for the world.”
