KPMG Board Leadership Center’s new survey on board diversity found:
Many directors would make moderate changes to their board’s composition if starting from a clean sheet.
Directors have concerns about blind spots and missed opportunities due to a lack of diverse views.
Sixty-nine percent of directors say board diversity of composition and thinking is relevant or very relevant to the company’s consideration of its role in society.
While a majority of directors say board leadership is effective at drawing out the views of all members, achieving better boardroom discussions is a work in progress.
Racial and ethnic diversity and technology and digital experience continue to be in high demand.Poised for Change? Boardroom Diversity Survey
