Board Diversity Policy
Chesnara plc (the “Company”) believes that a highly effective Board is one which comprises individuals with a broad range of skills, experience, expertise and perspectives in order to generate effective challenge and decision making.
The Company does not consider it appropriate to set measureable targets for representation on its Board. All Board appointments are subject to formal, rigorous and transparent procedure and are made on merit against a defined job specification and criteria. The process is overseen by the Board Nomination and Governance Committee (the “Committee”), which ensures candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds are considered on merit against objective criteria and with due regard for the benefits of diversity on the Board.
Chesnara is committed to monitoring and improving the performance of its Board. As part of this process, the Committee conducts a formal and rigorous annual evaluation of the Board’s performance, taking into consideration, among other matters, the mix of skills, experience, knowledge and diversity on the Board, in the context of the business challenges faced by the Company.
The Committee will conduct and annual review of the effectiveness of the Board Diversity Policy and make recommendations to the Board with regard to any changes.
