NOTABLE TAKEAWAYS

"The single most important thing business leaders can do to accelerate diversity in the boardroom is to insist on fielding a diverse slate of candidates. Including one token woman or one woman of color on the slate - that doesn't count."
Melinda Gates, Co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Founder of Pivotal Ventures
"It has to be part of an organization's culture. You cannot consider putting forth a slate of candidates that isn't diverse on every level."
Martin South, President, U.S. & Canada Division at Marsh
"In a global marketplace, it's important that the board rooms be populated with people who represent that marketplace."
Valerie Jarrett, Former Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama
