Boardroom diversity isn’t just how you look, but how you think

January 22, 2017

Diversity has become an omnibus, catch-all term to describe women, minorities, aboriginal people, the LGBT community, people with disabilities. In other words, CBDC utilizes external markers to measure “diversity.” The premise is that because these groups have a variety of skin colours, sexualities and genders, they will bring different perspectives to the table. So a board with a good sprinkling of people who look different from each other, but may have the same mindsets or personality types, will pass CBDC’s tests.
