As the world faces unprecedented times, Corporate America is under more pressure than ever to address the need for diversity, particularly at the board level. The nation is in the midst of a social movement focused on racial equality, and boards must keep pace with developments in equality or they may face potential backlash. Join representatives from Equilar, TPG Capital, Nasdaq and the Office of the New York City Comptroller for a web presentation to discuss how boards should address the topic of diversity in light of current events. The panel will walk through the search process and how to identify diverse and qualified board-ready candidates using the Equilar BoardEdge database. We’ll also highlight Equilar’s groundbreaking executive and board ethnicity data campaign.

Key Highlights:

  • An investor’s perspective on the importance of diversity in the boardroom

  • How boards are identifying both ethnically- and gender-diverse candidates

  • Comparing the composition of your board to your peers’ boards
