Talking Points

Leading For Diversity in the Boardroom

For the first time in the history of Australian business, the composition of company boards is becoming increasingly diverse. In the past 18 months, approximately 75 women were appointed to ASX 200 boards in order to meet new gender diversity guidelines and to combat the real threat of introducing quotas.

Listed company boards, for so long composed and led by men of a certain age and background, are changing as gender and other dimensions of diversity, such as age and ethnicity, become factors in board composition. This presents an important question: what additional skills will be required to lead diversely-composed boards?

This keynote address will examine:
• the background to the gender diversity debate in Australian boardrooms;
• why mixed groups make more effective decisions;
• new styles of chairmanship to lead diverse boards;
• creating a boardroom culture that embraces argument and debate.

I recently participated in board roundtable discussion on Corporate Governance arranged and facilitated by Ann-Maree Moodie. Ann-Maree clearly has a strong background in, and knowledge of, the issues surrounding corporate governance. She is also an excellent facilitator with an uncanny ability to encourage openness and participation from all attendees. Baron Partners Limited
