Diversity works.

It's very important to me that people from all backgrounds can come together to have their throat crushed by the corporate system.

"And now we can stand up, proud and free, and say:
"Yes, Sir!", and "Of course Sir", and "Anything you say, J.B.! "

We've made the world a better place by making places of businesses more efficient in the pursuit of an economic indicator that has a frivolous and imagined connection to human well-being and personal development.

We couldn't have slightly increased year-to-year operating revenues without your help.  Thank you.

Probably because you don't have to pay them as much.

The author of this article does realize that profit margin percentage is often determined far more by factors related to the corporate industry and size (Retail models rely on lower margins and higher volume) than the contributions of their top leadership?  I mean, feel free to ignore me since we are validating good ideas and all.

you're not female, so you're opinion is relegated to a 1.5% margin as opposed to 15%.

agree though; market factors influence profitability a little bit more than the gender of the executive team

Because everyone can do their job and not cover for double-scotch-bro-lunch chad who has it so hard because "Guys don't even know how to act today." Oh, and Fark you Chad, and your father and his golf buddies who taught you that was OK and got you the job.

I hope this is true. Our current (male) CEO is being replaced by a woman, and she'll have her work cut out for her turning the company around.

I'm heartened that women are finally taking their place above that glass ceiling rather than below it.
That way those of us still on the lower floor can peer up their skirts.
/Hey oh!

"Listed firms where at least one-third of the bosses are women have a profit margin more than 10 times greater than those without, it suggests."

Most of the companies I know of that have women as majority management tend to be involved in selling women expensive luxuries.   So companies that sell expensive products to women tend to have very high profit margins?
