Diversity & Inclusion – The Boards role as ‘agents of change’ - 5th Jan 2023
In this podcast, Dr. Sabine Dembkowski and Professor Randall Peterson discuss the role of the board in promoting diversity in organizations. Professor Peterson explains that although diversity can benefit your business, there is no guarantee that it will unless you embrace it by doing the inclusion work engagement, which is hard to do. Well-managed diversity leads to tangible changes in the culture of how a board operates and interacts (making it more inclusive and collaborative), which has positive effects on the bottom line and corporate value. The three top takeaways are the importance of advocating for diversity, the role of every director in promoting a culture of learning and growth, and identify a diverse set of directors.
