Board diversity and inclusion policy

DAS recognises the value of having a diverse and inclusive Board and the significant benefits this brings which includes:

  • Offering innovative solutions to problems;
  • Constructive challenges to existing norms;
  • An increased “richness” and diversity in decision making;
  • Improved business performance;
  • Setting a strong cultural tone for the rest of the organisation and external stakeholders.
  • Whilst all Board appointments are made on merit, DAS gives weight to diversity and inclusion in the monitoring criteria for Board effectiveness which is assessed on an annual basis. In undertaking this review consideration is given to the balance of skills, experience, independence and knowledge of Board members and the diversity of the Board; and will make recommendations to the Group Nomination Committee on the appointment of Directors as appointments arise or when the appointment period for the Director has lapsed.

    The Nomination Committee will incorporate these recommendations into its deliberations and will explicitly justify decisions that are inconsistent with such recommendations. As the Chair of the Nomination Committee is also an independent non-executive director of the Company and a member of the Board they will present back to the Board the Nomination Committee recommendations unless there is a conflict of interest when another committee member would present.

    Approved by the Board of DAS UK Holdings Limited and of DAS Legal Expenses Insurance Company Limited
