Is DEI in Your DNA? Embedding DEI in the Fabric of Your Board.

It’s 2022 and it’s highly likely that almost every board will add Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) to their agenda.

Boards are steadily making progress in terms of their capability, focus and impact in this area yet most have gaps, and few are at a stage where they would say that DEI is a true strength in their work.

Moderated by Rachel O’Connor, join WATSON senior governance consultant, Jodi Butts, and guest panelist David Simmonds as they discuss about what comes next in DEI. They’ll look at how boards can get ahead of the curve and be ready for the next conversations in DEI. This is about what your board can do to feel truly ready for whatever might come next.

We’ll discuss:

  • Where most boards are focused today
  • Where they need to expand their thinking and their work
  • What leading boards are doing

We’ll bring the topic to life by combining WATSON’s knowledge with real-world insights from guest panelist, David Simmonds, who sees this topic from multiple vantage points: as a director, an executive, and an advisor. We’ll be sure to leave ample time for Q&A and discussion so we can tap into the wisdom and experience of the group.

When: January 25, 1pm EST / 10am PST
