“We have smart, highly-skilled energetic diverse talent. Why wouldn’t companies want to have these valuable insights as part of their strategic decision-making? We are missing out huge opportunities.” – Pamela Jeffery, Founder of the Canadian Board Diversity Council
Launched in 2009, the Canadian Board Diversity Council seeks to improve diversity on Financial Post 500 companies in addition to federal agencies, boards, commissions and crown corporations. Find out more about this organization at www.boarddiversity.ca.
