Dr Barnali Choudhury, Senior Lecturer in Corporate Law, has published a Director's Note with The Conference Board entitled 'Women on Boards: Beyond Quotas'. Her report presents an economic rationale that focuses on women’s contributions to board process, as well as an equality rationale premised in terms of promoting social justice. It also discusses quotas and alternative methods for increasing women’s participation on boards.
Director Notes is a series of online publications in which The Conference Board engages experts from different disciplines of business leadership (including corporate governance, risk oversight and sustainability) in an open dialogue about topical issues of concern to member companies.
