Improving diversity on the boards of large corporations must involve more than addressing a lack of female representation, says Melissa Scully, a director of corporate governance at Deloitte.

In her role at Deloitte, Scully advises the private and public sectors on board effectiveness and corporate governance.

"Improving diversity is not just about increasing gender balance on boards. The ultimate outcome of a well-balanced board is a group that brings a variety of perspectives and exhibits diversity of thinking," she told the Irish Independent.
