In this special live Directors’ Series webcast, a panel of experts discuss the results of the CSA report and consider pragmatic measures for moving organizations’ diversity agendas forward.

You may watch the full replay or access a specific clip by clicking on the menu (triple-line) icon in the top left corner.

On September 28, 2015, the Canadian Securities Administrators released Multilateral Staff Notice 58-307, the first review of the diversity disclosures now required of public companies as a result of the amendments made to National Instrument 58-101. The review indicates that filings fall short of expectations.

Among the questions addressed are:

  • What are the expectations of regulatory bodies and policy makers for the next two to three years with regards to diversity disclosures? What does “progress” look like?
  • What is the evolving mindset of corporate Canada with respect to diversity?
  • What are the supply and demand trends and hard competitive facts for prospective new directors as demographics push baby boomers into their prime board serving years? What are the implications for new director intake?
  • What does it take to chair a diverse board and ensure that the differences represent a true strength rather than a struggle to maintain cohesion and collaboration?
