Maturing DE&I and Oversight
Boards and organizations continue to face complex questions as they mature diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) programs. Issues include challenging socioeconomic undercurrents and political divisions, all against a competitive human capital landscape.

The nomination process for the NACD annual DE&I awards reveals a range of initiatives that
organizations are implementing to mature their programs. "Overcoming Challenges: Lessons from the 2023 NACD DE&I Awards" outlines emerging practices and sets out a series of questions for boards to mature their DE&I oversight.
