International Director Network Releases Landmark Paper On Board Diversity

The ICD is a strong supporter of diversity and, in particular, the enhanced participation of women in the boardroom. A partner of Women On Board (WOB), the ICD sponsors one diverse candidate each year in the WOB Mentorship Program, which prepares mentees to serve on boards and expand their board network.

In addition, the ICD offers Diversity Scholarships for its flagship Directors Education Program (DEP), jointly developed by Rotman and the ICD. Launched in 2011, the scholarships are granted to 11 qualified candidates from diverse backgrounds with a financial need allowing them an opportunity to participate in the DEP.

The Global Network of Director Institutes (GNDI) was founded in 2012. It brings together member-based director associations from around the world with the aim of furthering good corporate governance. It is an international network among nine leading membership organisations for corporate directors in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Europe, Malaysia, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The following membership organisations are members of GNDI and collectively represent more than 100,000 corporate directors worldwide:

  • Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD)
  • Brazilian Institute of Corporate Governance (IBGC) in Brazil
  • European Confederation of Directors Associations (ecoDa)
  • Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) in Canada
  • Institute of Directors in New Zealand (IoDNZ)
  • Institute of Directors in Southern Africa (IoDSA)
  • Institute of Directors (IoD) in the United Kingdom
