  How is Nasdaq helping companies find diverse directors?
Identification Number 1750

Nasdaq is providing resources to help our listed companies and their advisors understand and achieve compliance with the Board Diversity Rule.  

Nasdaq recognizes that companies want to leverage their own network to create a candidate pipeline, while also tapping into a broader community of candidates outside their immediate network through a cost effective, transparent process.  Therefore, Nasdaq-listed companies have access to a variety of free or discounted board recruiting services.  We realize one size doesn’t fit all so we are building relationships with a growing number of collaborative partners.  To date, Nasdaq has established partnerships with Equilar, Athena Alliance, and the Boardlist to aid Nasdaq-listed companies that have not yet met the diversity objectives and would like assistance doing so.  Nasdaq has developed a board diversity tool kit to help companies determine which partner is right fit for their business.

The services offered are complementary or at a discount and are not mandatory.  Here’s how your company can gain access to Equilar’s BoardEdge Platform and Equilar Diversity Network, Athena Alliance’s community of women leaders, and the Boardlist’s premium talent marketplace.
