Directors to Watch: Progress of diversity in the boardroom continues to drive debate

The competition for talent may drive diversity in the workforce and the boardroom.

That was the assertion by Deborah DeHaas, vice chairman and national managing partner for the Center for Board Effectiveness at Deloitte, who spoke in May at the Private Company Governance Summit (PCGS), an event that was was founded six years ago by the editors and staff of Directors & Boards to transfer the core governance principles and best practices of public companies to the private company arena.

DeHass kicked off PCGS 2018, held in Washington, D.C., with opening remarks that framed up an evolving dynamic of diversity. Among the top issues on the agenda for public company boards, DeHaas said, quoting from the 2017-2018 NACD Public Company Governance Survey, is competition for talent.
