A Focus on Systemic Change
For more than 40 years, NACD has served as the authority on boardroom education and has worked—together with its members—to elevate board performance. Integral to that mission is the advancement of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the boardroom and within the organizations our directors serve. Over the last 18 months, we have looked internally, as well as to the broader external ecosystem, to identify opportunities to further diversify America’s boardrooms and to create more inclusive boardroom environments. We recognize that to see real progress, we all must commit to greater action.
We believe that NACD, its members, and partners have a unique opportunity to bring together their expertise, resources, and influence to create systemic change that will shape the American boardroom. The NACD Center for Inclusive Governance™ (the Center) is based on a shared understanding that a diverse and inclusive board is critical to long-term value creation for every organization and to society more broadly.
