Board Diversity: Why so sticky?

18/01/2018 7:30:00 AM | St. John's
The progress in gender and ethnic diversity on boards of directors has been slow and modest, even with the pressures from academics, policy-makers and investors, who contend that board diversity is linked to improved decision-making and profitability. Existing research tells us that diversity is determined by a number of firm-level elements including firm size, current and historical diversity, and industry. We argue and present empirical evidence that a firm’s external environment – its social networks and institutional environment – influence board diversity and ultimately, profitability.

Cyber Security, What Do Board Members Need to Know?

23/01/2018 7:30:00 AM | Ottawa
Over 27,000 successful cyberattacks were reported during the first six months of 2017. With companies like Equifax and Yahoo! experiencing attacks, cybersecurity  is  more  of  a  “when,”  not  “if”  concern. A cyberattack  puts everything at risk, as an organization’s brand, reputation and intellectual property can be hijacked or stolen. A cyberattack can also lead to regulatory and compliance risks – elevating the issues to a board level concern.
