Longtime Leadership in Board Diversity

Ventas has long placed a priority on gender diversity at the Board level, and has maintained at least two female Board members since 2001, including Chairman and CEO Debra A. Cafaro. We have earned distinct honors as a “Winning” company on the 2020 Women on Boards Gender Diversity Index (opens in new window) and as a Corporate Champion by the Women’s Forum of New York(opens in new window). Diversity within the board is critical in bringing together varied perspectives and complementary experiences, and has been shown to have a demonstrable impact on business performance.1

Board and Committees

Our experienced, diverse and independent Board of Directors is an essential element of Ventas’s success. Our board members challenge us to outperform, manage risk and create value for our stakeholders. Their collective strength, engagement and judgment have contributed greatly to Ventas’s excellence, stability and strong performance.
