In this research, relationship between board diversity and performance of the companies listed in Tehran Stock Exchange (TSE) has been evaluated. This evaluation has been done by studying relationship between important criteria of board diversity including age, education, gender, Board Size and firm performance. To test hypotheses of this research, information of 76 companies has been used during three-year period from the early 2009 to the late 2012 and multivariate regression model has been applied using panel data.
