Mention diversity and people will automatically think you are talking about getting more women on the board.  And yes that is an important issue.  But diversity not only includes gender, age, disability, and so on, it also refers to the diversity of skills and experience.  Good boards will evaluate the range of skills, expertise and experience round the boardroom table and assess whether they are sufficiently broad to help the company to meet its objectives.  The style and effectiveness of boardroom discussion and decision making are also heavily influenced by the extent of the diversity of the directors.

Led by Arthur Cox Partner, Alan Taylor, The Effective Board – ensuring diversity will use an interactive, boardroom-style format to examine what diversity in the boardroom really means.

The Effective Board events are supported by Ulster Bank and Arthur Cox.
