A critical and timely discussion on board and leadership team appointments brought to you by BoardEx and the Non-Executive Directors’ Association, supported by Hunt Scanlon.
As organisations across the globe create change, adopt more joined-up Diversity & Inclusion (‘D&I’) responses and look to hire more diverse leaders, who they hire and where they sit is important.
Join our panel of experts who will explore:
- Board Chairs are key to opening the boardroom door to new diverse board members – are Chairs open to taking a risk in appointing 'new blood' or are they taking the safe option of only seeking 'tried and tested' NEDs?
- The representation of women in corporate leadership is coming under increasing scrutiny as stakeholders demand a greater degree of commitment to progress on gender equity – are Nominations Committees actually listening and doing their job?
- According to a recent BoardEx study, women are found in much smaller numbers in the job functions that make up leadership teams. How will that affect who makes their way to the top?
- The window of opportunity for board appointments is longer for qualified men than it is for qualified women in both the UK and the US. Women tend to be appointed to board seats at younger ages than men, but within a tighter time frame. What does this mean for boards, the board chair and the reality of succession planning?
- What are the roles of “power” vs “Influence” within the leadership team and how does that ultimately impact hiring decisions down the line?
How will these insights impact your ability to secure a board level role? How will these trends influence your board and inform board appointment needs in the future?
