About Us

‘Bringing together a diverse range of skills and experience is an important aspect of good governance and a pre-requisite for a constructive and challenging board.’ (AICD)

Board Diversity’s Governance Reviews provide an independent assessment of the capacity of boards and Councils based on the diversity and experience of present board membership. Rather than focusing on individual Board member contributions the reviews reflect the collective contribution of Board members with an eye to developing and enhancing performance in order to develop an ongoing programme to ensure Board responsibilities are being met.
