We are proud to announce that MCCA has partnered with the Equilar Diversity Network (EDN) to launch a data campaign to aggregate additional measures of diversity, specifically race/ethnicity. We’d like to invite MCCA members to participate in this important campaign, and encourage you to ask your executive and board member colleagues to do the same, to increase transparency around ethnic representation on corporate boards and the C-suite.
Members can claim their profiles on Equilar’s BoardEdge platform, which hosts more than 500,000 executive and board member profiles for board search opportunities. By self-selecting ethnicity, participants are supporting a data-driven approach to increase board diversity while also making profiles more accessible when diverse candidates are searched.
In partnership with Equilar, we’ll be releasing a report this fall on our progress. We hope you take a moment to participate, and we look forward to continuing our important work together.
