Diversity on Boards is, and quite rightly continues to be, a hot topic. With the news last month that there was not a single CEO, CFO or Chair from an ethnic minority background on the boards of any FTSE 100 businesses, it serves only to underline that there remains work to be done.
Norman Broadbent’s Board practice has been at the forefront for improved inclusion and diversity for decades. Over the last ten years, we have seen the emphasis on diversity shift, with first the Davies report in 2010 shining a light on gender diversity, and more recently the Parker report, setting a similar agenda for ethnic diversity. However, in the background of this conversation, there is also an increasing acknowledgment that what is key – and what these various movements are really trying to address – is diversity of thought.
