Why board diversity matters

Dow’s board of directors is a visible reflection of our overall enterprise.

At Dow, inclusion, diversity, accountability, and good governance starts with our Board of Directors.

We talked with Amy Wilson, general counsel and corporate secretary, for her insights on the strong correlation between diverse boards and long-term competitiveness. She also shared Dow’s strategy to regularly and thoughtfully refresh the composition of our Board of Directors to ensure we benefit from a broad and new set of perspectives – which is important to managing risk and implementing successful strategies in today’s complex world.

These are the key reasons that shareholders, investors, customers, and other stakeholders are paying a lot of attention to board composition, including whether there is enough diversity in the boardroom and if a board has the right skills to govern a company through the current and longer-term economic and social environment.
