Building a Better Board Series: Board Composition - Part 1

Boards of directors are increasingly focused on improving board diversity for several years.  This focus includes broadening the composition of boards of directors with respect to gender, ethnic and racial backgrounds of board members as well as specific industry knowledge, skills, and age. Including diversity in a board’s composition plan enhances its ability to oversee the management of the organization.

In addition to board structure and diversity, this webinar discusses the issue of independent directorships and considerations for building the most effective board for your organization.
