Increasing Diversity, From the Top Down Webinar: Why Board Diversity Matters to Your Organization

Webinars Oct 28, 2021

October 28, 2021

Your board sets the tone and direction of your entire organization. Despite clear benefits of diverse boards, like higher revenue, retention rates, and productivity, the great majority of corporate boards remain homogenous.

Studies show that board diversity has improved in recent years but still has a long way to go. In 2021, women make up more than 50% of the U.S. population and 56% of U.S. college graduates but hold only 27% of board seats in the S&P 500. Women of color make up 18% of the population but hold just 4.6% of board seats in the Fortune 500. It’s time for change.

In this webinar, we:

  • Review the business benefits of diversifying your board, plus dispel common misconceptions
  • Share action-oriented strategies for developing a diverse board member pipeline
  • Discuss ways to improve DEI education at the board level so members can model inclusive behavior and advocate for organization-wide DEI implementation

This webinar is moderated by TDM CEO and serial board member, Donald Thompson, who is joined by guests Hilda Pinnix-Ragland, Paul Dillon, and Suzanne Miglucci.
