Women and Diversity: Examinations of the Boardroom, the Battlefield, and Congress


Alvin Mendez (Editor)

Series: Women’s Issues
BISAC: SOC028000

Women make up almost half of the nation’s workforce, yet research shows that they continue to hold a lower percentage of corporate board seats compared to men. Research highlights advantages to gender diverse boards, and some countries have taken steps to increase board gender diversity. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) requires companies to disclose certain information on board diversity. This book examines the representation of women on boards of U.S. publicly-traded companies and factors that may affect it; and selected stakeholders’ views on strategies for increasing representation of women on corporate boards. Furthermore, this book discusses women in combat, and includes a discussion of the impact of women in Congress as well as historical information. (Imprint: Novinka)
