NEWS AND INSIGHTS UPDATE:
If you want to get a seat on the board of directors of a big company and you’re a woman, you’ll increase your chances significantly if you get some experience in finance.
Louisa Peacock of The Telegraph reports that is the key finding in a recent study from Cranfield School of Management, which discovered the following disparity between the experience of current board directors:
“Almost half of female executive directors are financially qualified, while 65 percent have a financial background, the study shows. This compares to just 26 percent of their male colleagues being financially qualified and 44 percent having a financial background. More than half of new female, non-executive director appointments have a functional background in finance.”
