As part of an ongoing effort to promote diversity in America’s boardrooms, Equilar launched the Equilar Diversity Network (EDN) in 2016. A feature of the Equilar BoardEdge database, EDN is a consortium of leading diversity-focused organizations consolidating robust registries of board-ready executives.
