March 2017. WBUR Marathon.
“When it comes to diversity on corporate boards, there are some Boston-area companies that stand out from the rest. A new list created after a survey of more than 50 Massachusetts-based companies was released Wednesday highlighting 15 companies with the most racial and gender diversity on their corporate boards. These companies have boards where at least half the members are women and minorities. The list is the brainchild of Colette Phillips, who runs Colette Phillips Communications and is the founder of Get Konnected!, a major professional networking event series. Phillips said having diversity on corporate boards is crucial for businesses to operate in an increasingly diverse marketplace. The people who sit on boards are the ones guiding the direction of these major companies.”
