It pays to have women on your corporate boards

2 posts / 0 new

That’s the conclusion drawn from a new Credit Suisse Research Institute report that shows businesses with women on their boards outperform businesses with only men on their boards. Looking at similar sized businesses – companies that had at least one woman on their board did better than companies with no females by 26% in terms of share prices.

Currently, more than a third of all U.S. companies don’t have a single woman on the board. Not only that, female CEOs make only 69-cents to every dollar that a male CEO makes. We need to fight more equality in the workplace. Not only is it the moral thing, but it’s good for business, too

It would be good if the women could civilize the system,but the system is so corrupt,the reverse will happen,the women will become "mad dogs"! Look at the children? Well they have to learn as we did,so they need to come aboard with as much help as possible.

GOP Blocks Equal Pay...again.

Just in time for election season, Senate Republicans blocked legislation aimed at closing the gender pay gap. For the third time since 2012, Republicans refused to allow debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, and reminded women that the GOP doesn't believe in equal pay for equal work.
