NACD Board Leadership Conference NACD Chapter System

January Lunch Program

January 16, 2018
Pittsburgh, PA



Join us for our January lunch meeting with Jim Rooney who will discuss the "Rooney Rule and Board Diversity".

A National Football League rule requiring teams to interview minority candidates for top positions may be used to address the lack of diversity in American boardrooms. It has been widely reported that since the NFL implemented the "Rooney Rule" in 2003, it experienced an increase in diversity in its coaching staff. Unlike other methods for increasing board diversity that focus on who gets hired—such as binding gender quotas or resolutions that set voluntary and aspirational goals—the "Rooney Rule" places the emphasis on opening up the process so that more diverse candidates are considered.
