Diversity in the boardroom

The composition of UK Boards should reflect the diversity of UK society as a whole. Having a Board of Directors that resemble one another too closely will not be in the interests of the company’s customers, shareholders or employees.

A good Board of Directors should look within itself to ensure that the company’s interests are being met and that will include a broader participation of gender, race or religion in order to move the business forward. Executive recruitment policies should be changed to ensure this.
