A global analysis of the effectiveness of corporate board diversity quotas

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

The project aims to examine the global effectiveness of attempts to change the demographic profile of corporate boards through gender diversity quotas (GDQs). It will investigate how firms respond to mandates for GDQs worldwide; how directors are introduced as a result of GDQs inducted into different types of boards globally; and how corporate governance practices need to be adjusted to facilitate intended benefits of complying with GDQs in different global settings. The project is expected to provide an evidence base for policy-makers and corporations to make GDQs work effectively, sustainably, and strategically.
