The most outrageous explanations companies have used for not appointing more women to their boards!

Excuses include:

  • "There aren't that many women with the right credentials and depth of experience to sit on the board - the issues covered are extremely complex".

  • "I don't think women fit comfortably into the board environment".

  • "Most women don't want the hassle or pressure of sitting on a board".

  • "All the 'good' women have already been snapped up".

  • "We have one woman already on the board, so we are done - it is someone else's turn".
