Women on Boards

Women are well established in professions like medicine, law and banking. They’ve advanced to the top of prominent companies, including General Motors, GlaxoSmithKline, Pepsico and IBM. Yet a gap remains: corporate boards. Men hold about 80 percent of all S&P 500 board seats and growth in female representation has slowed. European countries and companies have instituted formal mandates, sometimes backed by fines, to narrow a similar corporate-board gender gap. Then there’s Asia, where women are virtually absent from boards, holding 10.2 percent of seats in a 2016 study of 100 companies. – more – https://www.bloomberg.com/quicktake/women-boards by Laura Colby
