The Diverse Director DataSource (3D) has been widely recognized for helping start the conversation regarding the need for more diversity on public company boards.
Over the last few months, MSCI ESG Research, CalPERS and CalSTRS have been diligently working on the "next chapter" for 3D, with the intent to continue to leverage its remarkable experienced, as well as untapped, diverse director talent.
To that end, we are delighted to announce that the new host for 3D will be Equilar's Diversity Network; a "registry of registries" connecting candidates with boards.
This move will also continue the multi-pronged approach of CalPERS and CalSTRS to pursue the business case for enhancing diversity on boards. Including 3D candidates in Equilar's Diversity Network is one of the many steps that will be taken to showcase the depth, breadth and availability of qualified, diverse directors. CalPERS and CalSTRS will continue their work on the "demand" side, and sharing information about the important business case for a diverse board.
We anticipate that 3D candidates will shortly be able to update/enter their profile information in the Diversity Network's 3D file. CalPERS and CalSTRS will be sharing more information about this as it becomes available.
Should you have any questions in the meantime, please contact our 3D consultant, Diane Miller, at email@example.com. It will be her pleasure to assist you.
We are delighted to share this exciting development with you. Thank you again for your participation in 3D.
