The time for
change is now
For years, Diversity & Inclusion professionals have touted diversity as simply better for business. Countless top-tier companies have added D&I to their list of values. And yet, only 16% of executive team members in the United States are women, and just 2.7% of executives in senior roles at ten major tech companies are Black.
The reality is that, although corporate culture and values have changed, the faces of executives have not. If diversity is not to be a mere PR buzzword, there needs to be actionable change in the way that companies hire their executives. That is why AboveBoard exists.
Gender diverse executive teams are +27% more likely to have superior value creation.*
