NZX diversity rule

Jul 05 2012

The Institute of Directors is pleased to see the NZX taking steps to address diversity on boards in New Zealand. 

While every step helps there is still a long way to go and much to do in this area. We would encourage all companies to take this as a starting point and consider developing their own diversity policy.

Diversity is not just about gender. Diversity is about having a wide range of skill, experience, background and perspective, gender is simply a part of that. All boards can benefit from better decision-making, balanced risk-taking and robust debate that comes from having true diversity.
