Good governance matters.
The Institute’s mission
is to empower it globally.
Good governance has the power to drive financial performance, improve transparency and accountability, and deliver benefits to all stakeholders. Diligent has the privilege of working with boards across 14,000 organizations in 90 countries – we’re giving back to our industry with The Institute.
Why was The Institute created?
The Institute provides publicly available, industry-leading research on global board governance. Today’s increasingly dynamic world presents a dizzying array of economic opportunities and challenges. As companies navigate that environment, high-quality governance is more important than ever to ensure effective oversight, protect and create jobs, and positively impact the economy. The Institute equips board directors and corporate leadership teams at organizations around the globe with the information to make forward-looking decisions that leave a meaningful mark on the world. Given Diligent’s reach, the Institute’s research is derived from real experience across sectors and geographies, utilizing quantitative surveys, case studies, and interviews with leading professionals.
Who are we?
Diligent Institute was founded in 2018 to offer a global perspective on the complex and disruptive board governance topics that directors and leadership teams are tackling today. The Institute serves as the global governance research arm of Diligent Corporation, the leading Enterprise Governance Management provider of secure corporate governance and collaboration solutions for boards and senior executives. The Diligent Institute is solely funded by the Diligent Corporation and functions like a not for profit think tank.
