I was on a panel at the recent Miro Summit on gender diversity in the boardroom. My speaking notes are here.
As I said, I am not a fan of any sort of quota system, but I do think that companies do better with diversity (in all its forms) on their board.
Anyway for those interested in this area, Women on Boards have a Gender Diversity Summit on the 1st of November. Their keynote speaker is Dr Sharon Lord, who in her 30s was a Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Ronald Reagan. Lord lives in NZ for five years.
