Description A number of papers came from this seminar series. The most interesting was one around Women on Boards and the so-called Business Case. The principal finding was that a literature search did not support a business case for women on boards and an empirical examination of FTSE 100 listed companies revealed a sectoral imbalance between women on boards as non-execs and all male boards.
Exploitation Route Might be of use to those trying to use quota arguments for female participation.
