Who We Are
Despite the years of focus on diversity, there is recognition that the pace of change has been glacial. If companies seek to become more inclusive the work has to start with the board. The Board Diversity Action Alliance believes that corporate diversity and board diversity go hand in hand – leadership starts at the top.
Signatories will accelerate change by supporting a concerted enterprise transformation approach to diversity by integrating talent, accountability and engagement. Signatories voluntarily commit to:
- Increase the number of Black directors on its corporate board of directors to one or more;
- Disclosure of the self-identified race and ethnicity of directors on corporate boards;
- Report on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion measures on an annual basis.
How We Get There
The Board Diversity Action Alliance is leading the focused and aligned effort to quantify, convene and amplify the work being done by building partnerships with the corporate and non-profit community to increase awareness and expand influence.
