Director Diversity Initiative

The objective of the Director Diversity Initiative is to encourage boards of directors of public companies to increase their gender, racial, and ethnic diversity. The DDI has sponsored annual “DDI Board Boot Camp” programs since 2006. 

The DDI maintains a computerized database of potential diverse directors. Corporate nominating committees are invited to contact Lissa Broome to identify board candidates from this database. Potential diverse directors are encouraged to register for inclusion in the database. Check out our successes and read more about our Board Diversity Census for the largest NC-headquartered companies. This website is intended to serve as a clearinghouse of information about director diversity, with links to data on board diversity, and other organizations focused on board diversity. Please forward any information you believe should be included in this clearinghouse to Lissa Broome.
