Dr Sabine Dembkowski / Yetunde Hofmann

Social studies provide clear evidence that more diverse boards are more effective. Organisations that are governed by more diverse boards are less likely to get embroiled in scandals and are financially more successful. The business case is very clear and yet diversity is all but the start. What counts is the integration of people in the boardroom of a different gender, different race, different colour, different religion and different background. 

Welcome to the Better Boards podcast series. In this episode, I am delighted to talk with Yetunde Hofmann about Post-pandemic challenges: Integration – the elephant in the boardroom?

I am Dr Sabine Dembkowski, Founder and Managing Partner of Better Boards. We make the boards of the most ambitious organisations more effective. Our mission at Better Boards is to contribute to creating better boards. We do this by providing clients with an evidence-based approach for board evaluations and board development programmes. 

To fulfil our mission, we give a voice to all who are care about creating better boards. Every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the months, I speak with those that service boards about topics that are ranked high on the agenda.

Yetunde is a Non-Executive Director and Chair of the People, Culture and Remuneration Committee at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) where she is also Champion for the Middle East.  She is a Non-Executive Director of Treatt Plc, and a member of their Audit, Remuneration and Nominations Committees.  She is a Board Trustee at the Institute of Business Ethics (IBE), Board Trustee and Chair of the People, Culture and Remuneration committee of The Education Development Trust, a Visiting Fellow at University of Reading’s Henley Business School and a Board Mentor at Criticaleye, the peer to peer Board level Community.
