ICAEW Virtually Live - 15-17 June 2021


Boardrooms make some of the most influential decisions in the country, but do they reflect society and understand intergenerational challenges, which have been exacerbated by COVID-19?

In this session James McMillan, NED and Chair of the Audit Committee at Stockport Credit Union, will discuss the opportunities and challenges of building a generationally diverse board. He will consider how boardrooms could balance the need for experienced minds alongside new skills and perspectives.

Gain practical insights into the steps that young professionals can take to secure their first NED role, from McMillan, who is one of the youngest people to win the Institute of Director's Director of the Year Award. He will also share examples of how existing board members can encourage and embrace a more generationally diverse boardroom.
