The notion that expanding the board without any other action would meaningfully impact "diversity" is absurd on its face.
It is a question of probabilities, as increasing the number of elected seats from two
per year to 10 per year (30 total) would almost certainly increase the diversity of
background of Board members by any measure one could devise (although there
would be significant efficiency impacts as a result.)
Does increasing the number of elected seats from two per year to three per year
result in a similar change in the probability of a more diverse set of backgrounds
among Board members? Probably, but each of us has to assess whether the net
change is meaningful compared to the downsides that result from a larger Board.
