Companies with the highest percentage of female directors have been shown to outperform on return on equity, return on sales and return on invested capital. They pay less to gobble up other firms. They have lower stock price volatility. And those with more women at the top have even been shown to have fewer governance controversies, such as bribery and fraud.
from the Washington Post
The ladies, it seems, are the best
at passing the corporate test.
They bring in the dough,
and yet boards are slow
to help them fill up their hope chest.
