Abstract:

In 2002, the Norwegian government mandated that public companies must make their boardrooms 40 percent female-and the results have been nothing short of astonishing. With a spotlight on landmark legislation in Europe and unequivocal statistics from both sides of the Atlantic, this program demonstrates that gender diversity in the boardroom is beneficial to the bottom line. Concerns over government intervention in a free market and the redistribution of power via quota are addressed, while an experiment conducted by social psychologist Peter Collett contrasting the work approaches of two teams of business school grads-one all-male, the other male and female-offers intriguing insights into the dynamics of gender in the workplace.
