Exploring Board Diversity

At the PwC Women in Pensions event on 29 June 2021, Victoria Tillbrook and Minesh Rana hosted a session on Exploring Board Diversity.

To discuss the importance of diversity on boards they were joined by:

  • Sarah Smart, non-executive chair of The Pensions Regulator;
  • John Preston, chair of the Sainsbury’s defined benefit pension scheme, who has significant experience of fostering diversity on the boards of large pension schemes; and
  • Maggie Semple, consultant in D&I, non-executive director of PwC’s Business Restructuring Services practice, and member of the Queen’s Counsel Appointments Panel, who will share her experience of working with PwC to foster diversity and inclusion at all levels of the firm.

Victoria and Minesh have since penned this blog on their key takeaways from the event.

The event itself was recorded. Please see below for a summary of each section and the recording.
