Growth Resources Institute — Quiet Diversity: A Catalyst for Enhanced Board Effectiveness

SAN FRANCISCO , September 22 /Businesswire/ - Growth Resources Institute, a globally acclaimed consultancy renowned for its cutting-edge tools and methodologies aimed at fortifying organizational resilience, is delighted to announce its highly anticipated GRI 2023 Summit on the "Impact of Quiet Diversity." Secure a spot today.

While gender diversity grabs headlines, GRI's research shows that socially and professionally diverse boards are more effective. McKinsey's research supports these findings.

"Diversity goes beyond gender, race, or age; it includes personal style," says Frederic Lucas-Conwell, GRI's CEO and Founder. "Quiet diversity emerges as the most pivotal factor influencing a team's performance, including the board of directors."

Mark your calendar for the GRI 2023 Summit's interactive session titled "Boards Embracing Quiet Diversity," scheduled for October 3, 2023. This session will feature a distinguished panel comprising board members and venture capitalists.

The conference will delve into the pivotal role quiet diversity plays in enhancing communication, decision-making, and innovation within organizations. It will also explore how diversity shapes the relationships among board members, especially during periods of rapid organizational transformation.

"In today’s fast-moving business world, organizations solve hard problems by bringing diverse thinking to bear. Uniformity of vision leveraged by wide-ranging skills, styles, and perspectives is key to success,” emphasizes Chris Shipley, journalist, entrepreneur, and author.
