The NYSE Board Advisory Council’s mission is to improve diversity on public and private company boards.

We don’t just talk the talk — we have deliberately created a database of diverse board candidates to match with our NYSE-listed companies who have open board seats. We are partnering with Diligent to further the dialogue around Board Diversity and bring the conversation to the Board Rooms and decision makers in corporate America. Together, we hope to highlight next generation leadership, help companies stay ahead of the policy curve, and showcase those that are taking action in new and exciting ways.

These virtual events will be thought-provoking, educational, and interactive so that attendees feel empowered with current data, trends and an edge in the pursuit of Boards that better represent the diverse thinking businesses need and customers you serve.

Board Diversity: Rethinking Corporate Policies

May 6, 2021

Many of America’s leading companies have policies in place that prevent their executives from serving on external boards. These policies are one of the many obstacles of achieving board diversity and can complicate efforts that seek to advance women and diverse candidates into the boardrooms in corporate America. In a conversation with champions of change, we’ll examine the status of certain company policies, where leaders may need to evolve, and how supporting women and executives who are invited to join boards can be good for all stakeholders.
