Nicole Crum was quoted in the article, "Five Ways to Drive Board Diversity," which was published by Corporate Board Member on October 5, 2021.
Progress in women achieving corporate board seats in the U.S. actually slowed overall in 2020, yet pressure to achieve boardroom diversity continues to build, as evidenced by Nasdaq’s recent requirement that listed companies have two diverse directors or explain why they do not.
Nicole notes that "Someone may have a compliance or HR or consulting background, and they’re active in their industry and their community. They may have leadership and engagement experience and an overall impressive background—but they don’t show the climbing of a particular corporate ladder.”
