An article in the ‘Daily Telegraph’

My thanks to Fred for pointing out a fascinating article published in the Telegraph last October:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/jobs/8800101/More-women-on-boards-There-arent-enough-who-are-qualified.html

The arguments put forward for more women on boards are becoming more creative and, er, absurd. Some of the arguments are made by men who really should know better. I particularly liked the argument that boards should better represent their business’s customers. I look forward to the boards of Toys R Us and Mothercare appointing more mothers and toddlers as directors.
