Facebook searching for diversity on its board, report says

The social network, which is scheduled to go public on Friday, has hired an executive-search firm to identify at least one woman to join its all-male board, Bloomberg reports.

Facebook is looking to add more diversity to its all-male board, including at least one female director, Bloomberg reported, citing unnamed "people familiar with the matter." But don't expect any changes prior to the social network's scheduled IPO on Friday.

According to the Bloomberg report, Facebook has brought on executive-recruiting firm Spencer Stuart to identify possible new board candidates. Neither Facebook nor Spencer Stuart commented to Bloomberg.
