Mobilizing the Investment Community Towards Advancing Board Diversity

In collaboration with 2X Challenge, TheBoardroom Africa presents “Mobilizing the Investment Community Towards Advancing Board Diversity,” an opportunity for development finance institutions, their investees, clients, and funds to explore ways they can collectively leverage leadership diversity to improve investment performance.

Gender diversity continues to emerge as a key consideration for investors. A growing body of research highlights how increased diversity and an inclusive workforce contribute to strong business performance and improved investment outcomes. Moreover, gender diversity is a critical dimension of environmental and social governance not only with respect to workforce parity but also in terms of the quality of corporate governance.

In this interactive peer learning session, we explore different ways investors are mobilizing to advance leadership diversity, taking stock of what is working and the challenges. It will also provide practical guidance to the stakeholders on effective ways to transition to more representative organizations.

Send any questions you have ahead of the event to training@theboardroomafrica.com.
