The research was conducted for non-banking and financial firms in Indonesia stock exchange for 2010-2011.

Finally, the results of the sensitivity test with the full model and the full sample suggested that TP had robust positive effect in increasing firm value, then the moderating influence of board diversity (BSTUDY and MINORITY) on the relationship between TP and firm value was consistent but other variables of board diversity (AGE) are not consistent.
