Agenda, a boardroom resource platform from the Financial Times, interviewed Out Leadership’s Founder & Principal Todd Sears about Quorum, Out Leadership’s Talent Accelerator advocating for LGBT+ representation at the corporate board level.
“Search firms won’t focus on LGBT+ until their clients tell them they need to. So we need to get companies to change their board policies. The next piece is the supply [and] demand piece; if we can create the demand, to get the investor community to also include LGBT because diversity matters to them,” said Sears.
Quorum facilitates leadership development opportunities for future and current LGBT+ directors, and works with policymakers and companies to expand the board definition of diversity to include LGBT+ representation (Download Out Leadership’s LGBT+ Board Diversity Guidelines).
