Essentially, the reason why there are more benefits behind diverse boards is because you make the organization more resilient; you get a better chance for ideas to be challenged in the right way.

To me, leadership it is not about command and control. It is about understanding that everyone in your company is valuable and important. And they all bring dimension to the table. That’s the power of the pack.
Shelley ZalisFounder and CEO, The Female Quotient | "UNLOCKING the Boardroom" Podcast
I am pleased and inspired to cooperate with the Boardroom and for three very good reasons. The first is the sparkle and the passion that I see in Diana Markaki’s eyes when she talks about her project: she is a true and committed believer in women’s advancement in organizations. The second is the enormous potential I see in the women participating in the Boardroom, their willingness to have a positive impact on business and society. And the third reason is the vision of creating a world where women have the opportunity to work where their strengths lie, not where society dictates them.
Simona ScarpaleggiaExperienced Board Member, Former Global CEO
I am so impressed by Diana’s initiative in starting the Boardroom, and in the incredible community of spectacularly qualified women board directors she’s built. Diana’s exceptional business savvy and expertise, rigorous standards, high expectations and vision of a world where gender-equal boards drive better corporate governance, more innovative thinking and far greater financial returns, has resulted in a truly invaluable resource for every company and organization.
