Adding socioeconomic diversity to your board with Rhonda Brighton-Hall.


Today on the Take on Board podcast, Helga is speaking with Rhonda Brighton Hall about culture, diversity change and what makes a good chair. 


Rhonda is a director of Making Work Absolutely Human. And she writes and speaks for the Australian Institute of Company Directors. In fact, Helga heard her speak at the AICD Governance Summit and couldn't get near her afterwards because there was so many people surrounding her wanting to ask questions. So she sent her a tweet and voila - she’s here today to share her wisdom.


Rhonda is a former board member of the Australian Institute of Human Resources, and she currently chairs the Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee. She's also a former chair of Flex Careers and a former board member of Aussie Home Loans and Feel the Magic.


Before the episode is over, you will be rethinking the diversity of your board and coming up with an action plan to make some changes.
