Board Diversity Initiative

Boardroom diversity continues to lag significantly behind the wealth of diverse candidates ready and willing to take a seat at the leadership table. Toigo’s All A Board initiative is directed at addressing this critical leadership gap.

We started by building a network of qualified diverse candidates with deep finance expertise ready and interested to serve on public and private company, non-profit and foundation boards. Our All A Board community is currently 850 strong–and growing daily. Toigo is available to assist organizations in identifying a slate of diverse candidates that match the experience and qualifications you’re seeking. A more diverse “supply” to fill a growing demand for diverse leaders. That’s what Toigo delivers.

Our next step is expanding All A Board into the area of board readiness training. Knowledge of the basics of board structure, governance and other operational aspects of directorship are key to success. We’re currently gathering input on key topics of interest.
