Treasurer Goldberg Announces Release of “Bringing Diversity on Board” Report

July 2017. Massachusetts State Treasury.

“State Treasurer Deborah B. Goldberg announced the release of a comprehensive report from her ‘Bringing Diversity on Board’ initiative, an effort she launched earlier this year to help corporate leaders advance diversity in the boardroom. In May, Goldberg organized three roundtables in Boston that brought together participants from the following industries: technology; finance; and health care, biotechnology, life sciences, and pharmaceuticals. The report provides a detailed overview of the successful strategies and action items shared at the roundtables. ‘Board directors are charged with planning the strategic direction of the companies they oversee in a dynamic and rapidly-evolving environment.  Recruiting, investing in, and retaining a diverse board is not just a social goal; it is a business imperative,’ said Treasurer Goldberg.  ‘Working together, we are making important progress to strengthen our businesses and our economy.  Now is the time to seize the momentum.  We hope corporate leaders and other stakeholders find this report helpful and practical.'”
