“Boardroom Diversity: New Opportunities for Female Executives”
The business case for boardroom diversity: Credit Suisse Research Institute revealed that male dominated firms had recovered more slowly than gender-balanced firms since the 2008 financial downturn. Goldman Sachs announced that gender balances on boards in Europe could increase GNP by 13%. McKinsey revealed that the operational profit of companies with majority female boards was over 56% higher than those with male-only boards. Female majority boards also surpass male-only boards in auditing, control and risk oversight.
What can women around the world do to increase their chances of obtaining a board seat?
