NACD Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Awards

NACD Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Awards

The NACD Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Awards highlight forward-thinking boards that leverage the power of diversity, equity, and inclusion to enhance their governance and create long-term value for their organizations and stakeholders.

An NACD Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Award will be presented to three separate organizations. Nominated boards will be assessed based on how the board’s composition, culture, and practices align with the company’s DE&I objectives, and how DE&I approaches impact the organization and external stakeholders.
