Moving the Needle: Increasing Board Diversity in Canadian Organizations

Imagine if Canada’s boardrooms looked like Canada? In 2010, the Canadian Board Diversity Council set a diversity target for Canadian Boards: 30% by 2018. Their established definition of board diversity includes gender, ethnicity, aboriginal status, and disability. Not surprisingly, this target has not been met; and the needle on boardroom diversity in Canada is moving at a static pace.

Amanda Daoust provides greater context to the latest research on board diversity and engages governance experts Lois Nahirney and Bill Hatanaka in a wide-ranging discussion on what they think is needed to accelerate board diversity in Canada.
