Should you have women on your corporate board? Studies and a current bill winding its way through California’s legislative process say yes. This episode explores some of the complaints raised about putting women on a board and shares resources for where to find female board members (once you’re convinced it’s a good idea … or required by law to do it) and where women interested in board service can get plugged in. Spoiler: all the good ones are NOT taken.
