\”And this is despite the fact that there is plenty of evidence that putting women on boards correlates with better business performance.\”
Therefore quotas are unnecessary. If having women on the board increases profits then profit maximising companies will put women on the board.
That said greedy, manipulative, capitalist pig dog profit maximising companies do not put women on the board would seem to be evidence that having women on the board does not improve performance.
After all, we\’re hardly trying to argue, in The Guardian, that those who run companies are insufficiently greedy, are we?
