Live Webinar


For Members Only

 

Programme Objective
 

Diversity is not just a metric to be strived for. In fact, it is an integral part of a successful corporation and is ever more pertinent amid the Covid-19 pandemic, as companies are challenged to innovate in this uncertain business environment. A Boston Consulting Group study found that corporates with more diverse management teams have 19% higher revenues due to innovation.

 

In today’s fast paced and challenging business environment, an appropriate balance and mix of skills, knowledge, experience, and other aspects of diversity such as gender and age, is essential to avoid groupthink and foster constructive debate in businesses. Investors want to see an increased diversity of thought and experience to enhance risks identification and corporate performance.

 

As a nod to the increasing importance of diversity, the revised Corporate Governance Code 2018 states that the board diversity policy and progress made towards implementing the board diversity policy, including objectives, should be disclosed in the listed company’s annual report  for financial years commencing on or after 1 January 2019.

 

Join us in this talk as our speakers share the business case for promoting diversity and practical tips on how to promote diversity in the workplace and on Boards.
