In this boardroom activism keynote, founder and CEO of Marcus Ventures Lucy P. Marcus discusses the importance of a diverse boardroom committee for any company. In today's business world, the role of a board member goes far beyond simply looking over the shoulder of an executive or giving a push in a particular direction. Today's board member needs to engaged, informed and actually involved to ensure the company does more than simply survives, but that it also strives in its industry.

Marcus argues that the best way to achieve an engaged board is by making it as diverse as possible; diversity in terms of race, sex, age, experience, political values and knowledge. A diverse board will be reflected in a healthy and productive staff.

Marcus' boardroom activism keynote concludes that the more diverse a board, the more successful a company will be in comparison to its competitors.
