CBDC founder Pamela Jeffery names the Diversity 50 for Board Director positions

A leading voice in the fight to get more women and minorities on corporate boards in Canada has published its latest list of what it describes as highly qualified candidates.

The Canadian Board Diversity Councilsays its so-called 2015 Diversity 50 Cohort includes eight men and 42 women, six of whom currently serve on FP500 or Fortune 500 corporate boards.
The diversity council says the group includes six aboriginal candidates, up from five in 2014, as well as 11 visible minorities. All were vetted under a process endorsed by participating CEOs from 11 large Canadian companies.
According to the council, the Diversity 50 initiative has resulted in 22 board appointments to FP500 or Fortune 500 companies since its inception in 2012.
Meanwhile, it says recent regulatory changes have highlighted the ongoing need to increase the number of female directors in Canada.
So-called "comply or explain" disclosure requirements adopted by securities regulators in most provinces and territories now require core TSX-listed issuers to disclose both their approach and progress in achieving greater gender diversity on their boards of directors.
"More women than ever before are sitting on Canada's corporate boards, but we need to do more," said CBDC founder Pamela Jeffery.
