Difference Makers: A leader's guide to championing diversity on boards

by Nicky Howe and Alicia Curtis

Difference makers

A leader’s guide to championing diversity on boards – includes practical tools, templates and activities.


Difference Makers reframes the debate about who can participate in a board directorship so that differences are seen as a positive. In a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world, diverse markets, ideas and talent are forces that require leaders to embrace inclusive behaviours.

Dr Nicky Howe and Alicia Curtis share their experience developing an award-winning board governance program for young aspiring directors and the research on how different points of view and different experiences can enhance problem solving and spark innovation; it can build better boards and ultimately better organisations.

This book provides a thoughtful challenge to how diversity on board can be championed:

  • Develop a personal commitment to diversity by observing mindsets and emotions;
  • Develop a board diversity policy through recruitment, nomination and meeting processes;
  • Hear from board members from diverse backgrounds and those who advocate for them;
  • Includes useful quizzes, tools and templates.
