How Board Members Can Accelerate DE&I Progress for their Companies

September 30th, 2021 | 9 am PT / 12 pm ET

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) are in the spotlight, and for good reason. According to top investors like Blackrock, a company that “does not seek to benefit from the full spectrum of human talent is weaker for it — less likely to hire the best talent, less likely to reflect the needs of its customers and the communities where it operates, and less likely to outperform.” The business case for DE&I has never been more clear.


Yet, for many companies, DE&I progress is incremental at best. With the onus on boards to protect their long-term investments, board members play a unique and mission-critical role in advancing DE&I. In this webinar, learn from DE&I experts and board strategists how board members can help drive meaningful DE&I progress, including:


  • Top DE&I metrics that board members should track
  • Ways to design effective DE&I rewards and incentives
  • How to use pay equity as a key differentiator
  • Common pitfalls and how to avoid them
