If the words diversity, equity and inclusion were not already in senior executives’ minds, Nasdaq’s December 2020 proposal that firms would need to disclose hard figures about their board composition to the market will have changed that. Subject to SEC approval, the tech-focused exchange will require listed firms to have a minimum of one woman director, and one person who is from a minority or LGBTQ background on their boards. Companies that can’t meet this requirement will need to explain why.
