We are pleased to announce the upcoming webinar with Amit Tandon, Managing Director- IIAS & Zarin Daruwala, CEO- Standard Chartered Bank, India.

Multiple studies point out the merits of board diversity. In particular, having more women on a company’s board is important. Christine Lagarde, the current President of the European Central Bank, quipped that “If Lehman brothers had been a bit more Lehman Sisters we would not have had the degree of tragedy that we had as a result of what happened”.

Be that as may, not having enough gender diversity, is simply wrong.

In this webinar, Amit Tandon and Zarin Daruwala, will discuss the gender diversity question in relation to Indian companies.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Review corporate India’s board diversity
  2. Understand risk and missed opportunities in relation to gender diversity
  3. Understand practical challenges in improving gender diversity
