Board Diversity Search and Initiatives

Diversity enables views from multiple
frames of reference.

We help our clients build board diversity of all  kinds,
including ethnic, gender, geography, skill sets, industry background,
and other specific experiences.


Top boards make assessing and evaluating their diversity process an integral part of their governance. It can help directors determine which challenges and obstacles to diversity are present in the board and the organization and which policies need to be added or eliminated.

Plan Development

A diversity plan is the cornerstone of an initiative.  An effective diversity plan must be comprehensive, attainable and measurable. Leadership must agree on actions items and a timeline for execution and results.


Directors and leaders must incorporate diversity policies into every aspect of the organization’s function and purpose. Attitudes toward diversity originate at the top and filter downward. Management cooperation and participation is required to create a culture conducive to the success of a diversity plan.
