women in the boardroom
"Sports help women network."
Sukhinder Singh Cassidy came up with the perfect solution to one of the lamest excuses in the tech industry.
What does the future of work look like for women?
It’s one of just nine major companies that have at least 40 percent women in leadership.
A new report says the directors of the largest companies in the world are overwhelmingly male -- and things aren't likely to change much anytime soon.
Women hold nearly 19 percent of seats on corporate boards. That's considered progress.
Issues about the lack of women in senior corporate roles are discussed in the media and in forums regularly -- yet busy executives hear but do not fully get it -- that women at the top is a bottom line, strategic business imperative, not just a nice thing to do!
More women on boards is not the nice thing to do - it is the right thing for two compelling reasons: groupthink does not lead to good decision making and gender diversity on boards is highly correlated with stronger company financial performance.
Just like it "takes two to tango," it takes the dynamic synergy of men and women working together to make the changes Sanders calls for in his speeches.
