Women on Boards: Beyond Quotas

Subscribe to Director Notes

Studies seeking a causal relationship between an increased number of women on boards and increased firm profitability have reached equivocal results. This report presents an economic rationale that focuses instead on women’s contributions to board process, as well as an equality rationale premised in terms of promoting social justice. It discusses quotas and alternative methods for increasing women’s participation on boards, using Norway as a case study, along with practices adopted by Australian mentoring programs and American football teams.
