‘Improving’ gender diversity on boards leads to a decline in corporate performance: the evidence

November 11, 2012

From time to time we refer to five studies which support the argument that ‘improving’ gender diversity on boards leads to a decline in corporate performance. They’re referred to in a number of posts, and have been included in a number of our documents. But we thought it might be useful to have one short document with details of the studies and their Abstracts, so here it is:

  1. I’m not sure if you have seen this but, I have just started to read a 2011 E.U. PDF report with title:-

    Scenarios for a One Planet Economy in Europe. It would seem that the E.U. want to take us, by the year 2050, to a place that no one would voluntarly go.

    The first scenario jumped out at me. It is called

    ‘Clever Sharing’

    Quality-driven mindset
    towards development
     Dynamic technological
    innovation

    People have voluntarily
    become more socially
    responsible and
    environmentally aware in
    their lifestyles and act less
    selfishly
     Planned obsolescence of
    technology has been
    replaced by planned
    durability and reuse
     Energy infrastructure is
    largely decentralised and
    flexible.
     Competition has largely
    been replaced by
    cooperation

    You will note the last – ‘competition has largely been replaced by cooperation’ It would seem that there would be no place for, even feminised, men in the Board Rooms under this scenario. Perhaps the drive for ‘quotas’ is just part of a much larger agenda?
