Harnessing board diversity - sportscotland

| Diversity delivers | Public Appointments

This is one of a series of papers that describe the different techniques that boards are using to harness the diversity of their members.

 Each paper includes a checklist of actions that boards can consider adapting and adopting to suit their own circumstances.

 This paper includes advice on:

  • designing inclusive spaces that harness the diversity of your board
  • having recruited new types of board members, how to integrate and change the way things are done to make the most of the new intake
  • what passionate chairing looks like and the difference it makes to the empowerment of others.

[The board chair] makes sure you are included, he makes sure you are developing, he takes it seriously, he is determined about recruitment and he asks us each what we think about him and his Chairing. For someone like me who is new to governance and public appointments, Mel’s passion for change is a very good introduction to what this is all about.’  Susie Sandilands Board Member
