We are pleased to announce a partnership with Equilar, the leading provider of corporate leadership data, and Nasdaq, the world’s second-largest stock exchange.
The Digital Commerce Alliance (DCA) is working with these organizations—on behalf of our membership—to help make public company boardrooms more diverse.
The partnership enables members with a track record of executive experience and board service to be included in Equilar’s Diversity Network (EDN), recognized as a leading technology solution for identifying board talent. Nasdaq-listed companies get free access to the exclusive listing, including selected DCA members, to facilitate board composition planning.
The new partnership’s goal is to instill diverse perspectives in the boardroom that help public companies perform better and provide proven executives the opportunity to contribute at the board level to an organization’s growth and success.
Increasing the number of women and under-represented minorities on public company boards is a worthy objective DCA (formerly the CardLinx Association) is proud to support.
David Chun, Equilar founder, and CEO at Equilar, stated: “The Equilar Diversity Network welcomes the Digital Commerce Alliance as one of our newest partners in the effort to increase boardroom diversity. DCA members are at the intersection of finance and technology, innovators at the forefront of shaping strategies at many of the world’s largest organizations. We look forward to working closely with DCA to provide a platform to support affiliated members and companies in their efforts to increase diverse backgrounds and skillsets in today’s corporate boardrooms.”
This initiative is an example of DCA’s Trade for Good motto in action. Our non-profit trade association is committed to doing what’s right for our industry and our members.
