Cognitive diversity is no longer the gold standard for firms. It’s like folding our arms after presenting a thought experiment.
Oftentimes, we still need to go that extra mile with an actual experiment to test the validity of the thought experiment. In simple terms, real people acquire wisdom from lived experiences.
Furthermore, the constitution of a board reflects the essence and it’s also a true reflection of the brand when the PR frills are removed.
The good news is, forward thinking firms see both the moral and economic arguments for demographically diverse boards.
