How Best Buy created a 50% female board

Best Buy CEO Corie Barry shares some insight into how the company has championed board diversity.

Video Transcript

Corie Barry: Yeah, I am fortunate to have followed our prior CEO, Hubert Joly, who had very strong point of view about board diversity. And when you ask, how did you make it happen? We decided we wanted to make it happen. And there are plenty of qualified candidates out there, and, you know, when you prioritize, here's the qualities we need, and we would like to increase the diversity of the board, that's a very powerful combination. And so, you're absolutely right. Right now, actually, just a little bit over 50% of our board is female and just over a quarter are people of color. And I think that makes the conversations that many of us have been having around issues of inclusion and diversity issues of social justice, it creates an amazing platform to have those conversations. Not just as a leadership team, but actually with your board.
