The issue of gender equality, opportunities to perceptions, is fundamental to the future of business and enterprise both in the UK and around the world. Be sure to follow us as we post compelling industry articles and reports on this subject regularly.
A recent report published by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) recently joined the increasing number of voices from across the country and world for bolder actions to be taken to drive the change in female representation in business all the way up to the Board. Among its many recommendations, Tuesday’s report by the LSE Commission of Gender Inequality and Power suggests that “the burden of the argument should now shift from the under-representation of women to the unjustifiable over-representation of men”. They suggest that the first step in achieving this is for the imposition of quotas for senior positions in range of sectors including politics, economy, law, media, culture and communications. Do you think that legal quotas on our companies are the best way to achieve equality in the work place? Do you think the focus should shift from “too few women” to “too many men”?
