The Importance of Diversity in Board Composition

A board is a set of people that oversees and guides an organization to ensure that it operates legally and in the best interests of stakeholders and shareholders. It does this without regard to the management of the company and its day-to-day activities. The role of a Board is crucial especially in a society that is constantly changing and become more volatile due to new risks.

A successful board is composed of a mix of skills, experiences and leadership styles. This is a requirement to think differently and from different perspectives. The composition of the board needs to be carefully planned and considered considering the demands of leadership in the future.

Boards should also be agile and flexible enough to respond to rapidly shifting issues, which often require the board to rethink its structure and committees. For instance the rapid rise of cybersecurity threats has required boards to acquire new expertise in this field. In addition the volatility of the world has led boards to look for directors with experience managing difficult times.

A successful board should be able of attracting and retain members with diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives that will help the board reach its goals. This is why it’s important for boards to have a board matrix that can help in attracting candidates who possess the right mix of hard and soft abilities. This can be combined with a board portal such as iBabs which can help new directors get started quickly, by providing them with more opportunities to collaborate and interaction with their colleagues.
