Increasing gender diversity on corporate boards leads to declines in financial performance: the evidence

The studies are 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 prepare a short briefing paper with details of the five studies and their full Abstracts, and it’s here.
