In his annual letter to CEOs dated January 16, 2018, Larry Fink, Chairman and CEO of BlackRock, Inc. wrote:
"We also will continue to emphasize the importance of a diverse board. Boards with a diverse mix of genders, ethnicities, career experiences, and ways of thinking have, as a result, a more diverse and aware mindset. They are less likely to succumb to groupthink or miss new threats to a company’s business model. And they are better able to identify opportunities that promote long-term growth." Moderator
