Numerous studies show that diversity has a positive impact on the performance of boards. A diverse group of individuals has different experiences, perspectives and perspectives to tackle a problem which can result in solutions that would otherwise be overlooked by a board that is more homogenous. This is particularly true for boards that include people from groups that are underrepresented. They will gain an understanding of the cultural and societal preferences of the groups that comprise them, which can assist them in serving these groups better as clients.

Furthermore, having different backgrounds and experiences on the board can boost the trust and morale of a board. If board members feel that their views and opinions are being heard, they are more committed to the overall success of the company. It is essential to keep track of your board’s progress in encouraging diversity, and also to pinpoint any barriers.

Diversification can also be used to reduce risk. A recent study by Berger et al. The study showed that greater gender diversity and age-related diversity on the board led to improved risk management and a reduced risk of being exposed to market risks. The same study shows, however, that a high degree of diversity in the board can cause issues with communication and cohesion.

Furthermore, boards with a diversity of composition are aware of the unique challenges faced by underrepresented communities which can push them to take action to encourage moral conduct and social responsibility in their operations. This is why it is vital to continue to search for and find talented women as well as people of color and LGBTQ candidates for board posts.
