By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Investment Weekly News -- Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), announced that it has published an essay by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Rodney O. Martin, Jr., titled "Board Diversity by Design at Voya Financial."
The essay details how Voya has made board diversity an essential aspect of its governance structure and how it has become an advantage for the company. Four of Voya's nine independent directors are women, two of whom chair board committees.
"An environment where every board conversation is engaging and enriched by a variety of viewpoints and experiences enables a better and stronger board, providing more valuable oversight and insight for the company," said Martin. "Having diverse views also mitigates potential blind spots, or groupthink, and allows the firm to be readily adaptable in an ever-changing competitive landscape."
Voya published the essay in conjunction with Martin's interview on the same topic at the SAIS Global Conference on Women in the Boardroom, which was held yesterday in Washington, D.C.
The essay is available on Voya's website at http://go.voya.com/boarddiversity.
