What I learnt about gender diversity from speaking with the boards of Singapore-listed companies

I am immensely proud to have been part of the Singapore Exchange's Diversity Action Committee's "Women on Boards: Tackling the Issue" Report into gender diversity.

Conducting interviews with Chairmen and directors of SGX-listed companies, and researching the series of articles that appear in the supplement (link also below), I discovered the issue goes far beyond gender diversity itself.

The real issue is that boards of Singapore-listed companies must be the best they possibly can be. And that means they must draw on all possible resources available – including women.

Women may not be the main reason boards and companies outperform. But the presence of female directors is evidence of a board that is forward looking, open to new ideas, and has strong governance.

Check out the links below to the Diversity Action Committee's news release, the report, and the supplement.
