Bolder Policies for Diversity at the Top?
Has the time come for bolder policies at the top of the corporation? In almost all countries, the percentage of female CEOs is less than 5 percent and female board directors hover between 10 percent and 15 percent. Given that university graduates are now more than 50 percent female and the labor forces are also nearly equally divided by gender, the lack of penetration of women to the top of the corporation is stunning.
The conference takes for granted that diversity has an important property of social justice and other benefits, but to this adds the question at what cost to private liberties and economic performance. This half-day event began with a keynote address followed by two panels and active debate.
