PhaseNyne (parent company of Canadian Board Diversity Council - CBDC, Women's Executive Network - WXN and Stevens Resource Group - SRG) is proud to announce this year's Diversity 50 (D50) cohort – a list of highly-qualified and diverse candidates in search of corporate board roles, which could help Canada's largest companies source the top-level talent needed to compete globally.
Now in its sixth year of production, Diversity 50 is an initiative supporting PhaseNyne / CBDC’s mandate to increase representation of such considerations as gender, visible minorities, Indigenous persons, people with disabilities, and members of the LGBTQ community at the boardroom of Canada's 500 largest organizations.
The 2017 Diversity 50 list provides a much-needed resource that highlights candidates who have the knowledge, skills and experience to lead in corporate Canada but might not have the visibility or connections to get in front of hiring committees. By giving corporate boards the tools they need to locate these successful individuals, we’re allowing organizations to broaden their networks and, in the process, build a win-win situation for Canada as a whole.
For more information about CBDC, please visit boarddiversity.ca.
To select the Diversity 50 2017, the Council vetted the list through a process endorsed by 24 participating CEOs and executives (Diversity 50 Champions and Proxy Committee members). Thank you to our Diversity Champions, Proxy Committee members and their organizations for supporting and sponsoring the Diversity 50 initiative.
