Board Diversity refer to the presence of women on corporate board of directors. The boardroom is where strategic decisions are made, governance applied and risk overseen. It is therefore imperative that boards are made up of competent high calibre individuals who together offer a mix of skills, experiences and backgrounds. Gender Diversity means to consider and to promote different skills, different resources and potentials of women and men as equivalent. Corporate boards perform better when they include the best people who come from a range of perspectives and backgrounds.
