Unconsciously, we tend to like people who look like us, think like us and come from backgrounds similar to ours. In the board room, bias can be costly.

Diversity in Governance

The traditional corporate governance framework is not the only framework directors should understand. The June 2014 ruling by the Supreme Court of Canada in its Tsilhqot’in decision greatly widened the scope of the rights that accompany a claim of title. This ruling for example underscores the importance of understanding the governance model embraced by Aboriginal peoples. Learn about the defining elements of this model and others to ensure the board as a whole can deliver real value and contribute to the success of the organization.

« La diversité est vitale, surtout en administration. Elle permet d’innover, de trouver de nouvelles solutions aux vieux défis, de générer des idées novatrices et d’accomplir de grands changements. »

Fiona Macfarlane
Chef de l’inclusivité et directrice associée, ouest du Canada, Ernst & Young LLP

« Je n’en reviens pas de l’expérience et des compétences des autres participants. Comme il s’agissait d’un cours d’introduction, je ne savais pas trop à quoi m’attendre, mais j’ai pu constater très vite le degré de raffinement et les connaissances des participants. J’ai énormément appris, simplement en écoutant leurs histoires et leurs expériences. Ce cours m’a permis de me débarrasser de mes idées préconçues , car je pensais que les postes d’administrateur sont avant tout attribués en fonction des « gens qu’on connaît » et non de « ce qu’on sait » -- quoique je suis persuadée que cette pratique est encore largement répandue! Les cours comme le programme « Joignez-vous au conseil », qui mettent l’accent sur la préparation aux fonctions d’administrateurs de sociétés, sont une excellente façon d’avoir des conseils composés d’une diversité de personnes qualifiées ne faisant pas partie d’une vieille bande de copains. »
