My thanks to Fred for pointing out a fascinating article published in the Telegraph last October:
The arguments put forward for more women on boards are becoming more creative and, er, absurd. Some of the arguments are made by men who really should know better. I predict there may be more ‘Toady’ awards on the way. I particularly liked the argument that boards should better represent their business’s customers. I look forward to the boards of Toys R Us and Mothercare appointing more mothers and toddlers as directors.
