Webinaire “The Ethics of Diversity”, organisé par IBE (Institute of Business Ethics)
17 décembre 2020
We would like to invite you to a webinar where the IBE will be launching an important report on diversity, groupthink and the need for fresh thinking and wider life experience on boards.
The report has been written with the help of Deborah Gilshan, Founder, The 100% Club, who has made a major contribution to promoting gender balance on boards. The Report reflects on the lessons learned from the decade-long push on gender diversity and looks ahead to the efforts to address other dimensions of diversity. Simply seeking to meet targets from a compliance perspective will not lead to long term, sustainable change that addresses groupthink. Boards need to see diversity as a route to more effective decision-making and an improved board culture.
The report ends with a series of practical recommendations as to how a board can embrace cognitive and experiential diversity and unlock the sustainable business benefits from making systemic rather than cosmetic changes.
The webinar will be chaired by the IBE’s Associate Director Mark Chambers who commissioned the report. We will hear from the author, Deborah Gilshan, who will outline the key findings of the report and the practical recommendations that we are putting forward to help boards see diversity as a route to more effective decision-making and an improved board culture. We will also be joined by Dr Owen Williams OBE, Chief Executive of Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Trust who will offer his personal perspectives on diversity and observations on the IBE’s report and recommendations. The panel will then respond to questions from the audience.
