Blowing Up the Boardroom

Published November 16, 2021

The traditional makeup of corporate boards is under fire, and diversity mandates are coming from all sides — from Goldman Sachs to the state of California. But are these mandates enough, or is it time to change the way we think about board appointments from the ground up? Carolyn and Lindsay are joined by economist Dambisa Moyo, author of How Boards Work, who sheds light on what she thinks is the ideal board makeup for today’s ever-changing global economy. Later in the episode, Asahi Pompey, Global Head of Corporate Engagement and President of the Goldman Sachs Foundation, gives Carolyn and Lindsay insight on Goldman’s groundbreaking board diversity mandate — and how easy it should be for companies to meet that bar.
