Hello,We'd love to hear your opinions on the idea of quotas to increase the number of women on the boards of UK firms.In the UK, the proportion of female directors at FTSE 100 companies has risen from 12.5% in 2010 to 15% in 2012.There's some evidence to suggest that quotas may work; in Norway, where quotas were implemented in 2008, the figure rose from 7% on the boards of listed companies in 2003 to 42% in 2012.So.... do we need quotas to push this figure closer to 50%? Or is it patronising to suggest that they're needed?We'd love to hear your thoughts. And we'd love it even more if you could please vote in our Facebook poll about this - it's a simple yes/no question so it'll only take a mo. And we'd be ever so grateful.Many thanks,MNHQ
THE problem is that the women at the top are few and far between - and seem to manage LOTS of jobs eachen.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela_Knightand to anybody who argues that huge amounts of time are needed to be a board member of a listed companyWTF do you think your MP is doing then (look them up on duedil or here www.theyworkforyou.com/mps/)
