Diverse Thinking in New Zealand boardrooms is a must

Mai Chen, Founder and Inaugural Chair of the Superdiversity Institute for Law, Policy and Business released her audit report, Diverse Thinking Capability Audit in New Zealand Boardrooms 2018 today.

Ms Chen said “The Diverse Thinking Capability Audit report is a global first that explains what “diverse thinking” really means for governance, how to increase diverse thinking, the predictors of diverse thinking beyond gender and ethnicity, and how to create a diverse thinking Boardroom culture and governance practice for peak performance and better decision making.”

The report which was launched by diverse thinking Hon Grant Robertson, Minister of Finance, Sport and Recreation, Associate Minister Arts Culture and Heritage today in Auckland, gathers insights, guidance and advice from over 60 top Chairs, Directors, and governance professionals about how best to attract, retain, and leverage diverse thinkers in the best interests of the company or organisation.

The Diverse Thinking Capability Audit of New Zealand Boardrooms 2018 is not only a reference report and how-to manual for governance practitioners.

“The report is also a call to experienced directors to lead for more diverse thinking in Boardrooms in the best interests of the company/organisation. Diverse thinking around the board table is essential to improving the performance of companies and organisations,” said Ms Chen.
