In November 2009 the Government Equalities Office (GEO) published ‘Increasing Diversity on Public and Private Sector Boards’.
Based on research by the Cranfield School of Management, the project sought to address two main questions: 1) Why are there so few women and other under-represented groups on public and private sector boards? 2) What is being done in order to increase diversity on boards?. Part 1 of the report reviews the obstacles to boardroom diversity, while Part 2 maps out current practices aimed at increasing board diversity, both in the UK and internationally.
