For true diversity boards need to look beyond demographics

All boards strive to deliver effective decision making that adds value. To achieve this you need the right directors in place. Unfortunately, the lack of diversity on boards is a major stumbling block. Too many remain stale, male and pale. These are what I term “Jurassic boards”, because they can be populated by dinosaurs. It’s boards such as these that have a tendency to focus on the past and not on the future, and risk leading those organisations into extinction.
