Marriott Marquis Washington, DC

Lynn Shapiro Snyder, Senior Member of the Firm, will co-present "What Is the Board Governance Case for Having Gender Diversity in the Boardroom,” during AHLA’s In-House Counsel Program & Annual Meeting being held June 28-July 1, 2015 in Washington, DC.

The discussion will cover:

  • Do diverse boards make a difference in effective corporate governance? What does the evidence to date show and does that evidence vary by industry type?
  • Even if evidence shows that gender diversity may positively impact outcomes, what is the critical mass needed for diversity to make the difference? What are some strategies for achieving this critical mass?
  • Although evidence to date primarily focuses on the gender metric, what are the implications for other diversity metrics such as race and age?
