The 2019 WCD Thought Leadership Commission report assesses the state of board diversity globally and provides practical recommendations based on the wisdom and experience of corporate board members.
In Diversity in the boardroom: Pushing forward, reaching back, the WomenCorporateDirectors Foundation’s Thought Leadership Commission and the KPMG Board Leadership Center provide practical recommendations based on the wisdom and experience of corporate board members and diversity thought-leaders.
The report considers what it takes to push forward to change the face of the boardroom, and also how boards can reach back to drive change in their companies.
This report includes twelve recommendations for directors and boards to consider. Like any set of recommendations delivered to a highly diverse audience, any individual board will likely find that some are already underway, some can be implemented in the short term, and some are aspirational only.
Throughout, the report draws on the deep experience and wisdom of the Commissioners to provide practical suggestions and resources for directors to use in their boardrooms.
KPMG is proud to sponsor this report and to present it on behalf of the 2019 WCD Thought Leadership Commission: members with experience in boardrooms on six continents.
