State Diversity Board Mandates

Watch the webinar on demand.

State diversity board mandates: A number of states have drafted or passed board diversity legislation primarily aimed at improving the representation of women on corporate boards.

In this webinar we will discuss:

Diversity disclosure rules aimed at improving representation of women and increasing overall diversity on corporate boards are gaining traction. While some states attempt to require publicly traded companies to have a certain quota for women and minority directors on corporate boards, the real advancement in this area may arise from disclosure rules. 

Attorneys Sherril Colombo and Rocio Blanco Garcia from Littler Mendelson, the largest global management-side labor and employment law practice, will present for WIB on this topic. The presentation will discuss the following areas of interest:

  • Diversity and equity disclosures for board composition, including the status of the law nationally and pending legislation
  • Disclosure-only laws for board diversity requirements and penalties
  • Looking ahead and trends for board quotas vs. transparency and reporting requirements along with potential legal hurdles
  • Steps organizations can take to encourage diversity and more women on boards
