“Diversity is not currently the norm on most corporate boards, though all the evidence says that the trend is moving in the right direction, however slowly.

Along with the regulatory climate, there has been a seismic societal shift. Women are cracking the glass ceiling at an increasing rate, and we even have our first female Presidential candidate. New research says that having women on boards changes the way decisions are made, and it changes it for the better. Women should be on boards, and they are needed there. That pressure is also opening previously closed doors to allow more women on boards.”
