We believe diversity is crucial to a well-functioning board, and that companies who value diversity at every level of the organisation fare better than those that do not.
Board diversity is not only a social imperative, it’s a strategic necessity. Boards that resemble the firm's customer base and staff help to dispel negative stereotypes and lend credibility to stated efforts to recruit, retain and promote the best people.
Diverse boards offer a broader outlook and have been shown to improve the quality of corporate deliberations and policymaking. Studies have also shown a positive correlation between board diversity and company value.
At Marlin Hawk, we know that many companies have a long way to go and we are aware of our responsibility to promote diversity through our working practices.
