“There’s just no excuse”

  • We need to make smart, talent-based, perspective-building decisions about our companies and our boards. We have a very rich talent pool and we have a very real opportunity to build diversity of perspective into the organizational structures of our companies and their boards.

Anne M Mulcahy, The Focus, Egon Zehnder, 2013

I believe the potential of #diverseboards as a change agent remains extraordinary. Ms Mulcahy also adds another crucial point: CEOs need to make it clear that having a diverse board is a priority for them.

In the following short video, an excerpt from a longer, very interesting interview with Egon Zehnder colleagues for which we are grateful, Anne M. Mulcahy, former Chairwoman and CEO of copier manufacturer Xerox, makes a number of interesting points about the opportunity of selecting proper and diverse talent for boards.

I am very grateful to the outstanding talent of so many women who are already changing for the better many of the things we do.
