Board Agenda provides essential advice and guidance on the executive search and selection process. Whether you are searching for your next executive board role or you are seeking potential board member candidates, Board Agenda will keep you informed and up to date on all aspects of board selection. You can use the Resource Centre on the Board Agenda website to research the profiles of leading executive search firms and follow the Board Moves section of the website to keep track of the latest board appointments.
There is no doubt that in a climate of unprecedented demands for transparency and accountability in the boardroom, selecting the right board members is more important than ever. To keep abreast of the key issues dominating board search and selection, you can read the latest research by leading executive search firms such as:
Harvey Nash’s “Ethnicity Gap” survey which highlights that ethnic minority boardroom candidates feel “unconscious bias” among white, male senior leaders is a barrier and suggest recruiters should include diversity on shortlists.
Spencer Stuart’s “Board Index” research which sheds light on UK companies falling short of BAME directors.
Odgers Berndston’s latest reports including “The Role of Advisory Boards: Who, What, Why and How?,” “Less Lonely at the Top: Counsel and support for today’s CEO,” and “Keeping it in the family? How independent directors add value to family businesses.”
You can hear from industry experts and leading board members about the changing roles and responsibilities of board members and what recruiters and executive search firms are looking for in potential board candidates. An article by Lucy Trevelyan, for example, highlights the ICGN’s guidance on diversity that looks beyond gender, and in an interview with Dina Medland, Sir John Parker, chairman of Anglo American, calls for broarder ethnic diversity in British boardroom to enhance the broad-based skills and experiences that are required.
