Women on Boards established a Cultural Diversity Committee (CDC) in 2020 with the aim of addressing barriers to leadership, board and committee roles for culturally diverse women.

In this series we look at the women behind the CDC, their motivations for joining the committee, things they have learned along the way and their visions for cultural diversity in 2023.
