This article discusses a study that discerns between demographic diversity and cognitive diversity in the context of boardroom composition. It discusses the benefits and drawbacks of both types of diversity for board compositions, and offers recommendations on how to go about recruiting cognitively diverse board members. A key aspect discussed in this article is the difficulty of offering dissenting opinions in discussions in less diverse boards. Cognitive diversity helps to break that pattern.
