Complimentary access to Equilar's BoardEdge Platform & Equilar Diversity Network
Nasdaq is introducing a partnership with Equilar, the leading provider of corporate leadership data solutions, to help Nasdaq listed companies transform their governance practices through innovative technology.
Through the Equilar BoardEdge platform, which hosts nearly one million profiles and the Equilar Diversity Network, Nasdaq-listed companies can build a diverse, high performing board with access to a large community of highly-qualified, diverse, board-ready candidates.
Equilar BoardEdge enables companies to redefine board recruitment by objectively assessing board composition and discovering the power of their board's network. Companies can benchmark the composition of their board versus peers, discover candidates to fulfill succession planning needs and connect with individuals in their executive and board network.
The Equilar Diversity Network, available exclusively in BoardEdge, is a consortium to advance diverse representation in boardrooms across the globe. A registry of board-ready executives from leading ethnic and gender diversity organizations, which allows you to broaden your search and find director candidates outside of your immediate networks. Easily create your own folders with diverse candidates or view profiles in each organization's prepopulated folder.
- Search the database for candidates who meet criteria such as gender, title, board and committee experience, and industry experience
- Easily view all Equilar Diversity Network members who fit your needs
- Filter candidates by organizations to see how you are connected to individuals through your network
- Save profiles to a folder for future reference and download PDFs to share with colleagues
Corporate diversity, at all levels, opens up a clear path to innovation and growth. We are inspired by the support from our issuers and the financial community and look forward to working together with companies of all sizes to create stronger and more inclusive boards.President, Nasdaq Stock Exchange
