The NorthStar Quest
A LeadersBridge initiative to bring more diversity, creativity & outside perspective into organizations in Switzerland
In an ever-changing world, nothing stands still.
So why do corporate boards?
In a world full of colors, shades and complexities, black and white decisions make no sense.
Why should they in business?
Nothing in nature can exist in a vacuum, only in an ecosystem.
So why do we act in a vacuum in business?
We deeply believe that organizations need more diverse boards to bring positive change, ultimately leading to better decisions for everyone involved.
We address diversity in all aspects: culture, generation and gender and shine a light on the personalities, ideas and perspectives of NorthStar Leaders.
The Story Behind
In conversation with the Managing Partner of a Swiss Venture Capital Fund, we realized the need for change.
“Diversity in board meetings is missing. It is a dry environment. It would be much more productive with people from diverse backgrounds.”
Many conversations later, hearing the same need from different people over and over again, we decided to do something about this.
The win for corporate boards
We believe that having a diverse board is a huge win for the boards and everyone who is affected by their work
Who Are NorthStar Leaders?
"Leaders who follow their inner North Star to bring positive change onto our society and economy."
We connect leaders from different backgrounds to engage on boards of local & global companies based in Switzerland.
There are so many Best-of-Lists and awards of different kinds nobody remembers.
Our idea is simple: Stories people remember!
To a point where we reach a tipping point and a lack of diversity is no longer seen as acceptable.
