Diverse Thinking Capability Audit of New Zealand Board Rooms 2018

The Diverse Thinking Capability Audit of New Zealand Boardrooms 2018 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 was launched by diverse thinking Hon Grant Robertson, Minister of Finance, Sport and Recreation, Associate Minister Arts Culture and Heritage on 22 August 2018 in Auckland. The report 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, but is also a call to experienced directors to lead for more diverse thinking in Boardrooms in the best interests of the company/organisation.
