Conference on Board Diversity and Economic Performance


Center for Corporate Governance
Copenhagen Business School

September 29-30, 2011

Key note speakers:
Renee B. Adams (University of Queensland, Australia - to be confirmed)
Roberto M. Fernandez (MIT, USA)
Amy J. Hillman (Arizona State University, USA)


The aim of this conference is to bring together academics and practitioners (business leaders, policy makers, etc.) to discuss the state-of-the-art of theory and practice pertaining to diversity on board of directors. Drawing on the latest research on diversity, the purpose of this conference is to contribute to the current debate on the importance of board diversity in terms of social justice and economic benefits. Despite a growing awareness of the importance of various types of diversity among corporate directors,  little is known about how exactly diverse directors differ in terms of their experience and expertise, risk attitude, preferences, goals, etc., and how these differences influence the functioning of the boards and the firm as a whole. In addition, we need to better understand the internal policies that firms adopt in order to promote diversity, and the consequences of such policies. The conference seeks a dialogue between academics, practitioners and policy makers to further our understanding of board diversity, its benefits and costs, under what conditions the benefits prevail, and what kind of actions firms may undertake to mitigate the costs and promote diversity in the boardroom.

We encourage submissions from different disciplines such as management, economics, psychology and political science. We particularly welcome papers that address (but are not limited to) important questions such as: 
.	What specific advantages/disadvantages do female and foreign directors bring to the work of boards? 
.	How does diversity in terms of directors' education, professional experience and expertise influence board decision-making? 
.	How do gender, nationality, age and job-related diversity of the board and top management influence their performance and consequently the value of corporations? 
.	How does the participation of other stakeholder groups (i.e. employees) influence board activities, and what are the economic effects of such participation? 
.	What policies outside and inside the corporations can motivate diversity at the top of corporations? 
.	What are the benefits and costs associated with increased diversity of the board and what kind of actions can be undertaken in order to mitigate such costs?
