The article reports that the review by Lord Davies on the gender equality of corporate boards will ignore mandatory quotas for women to support a better approach. Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development diversity consultant Dianah Worman responds that the review must provide an improved list of recommendations to encourage women to seek board memberships instead of fixing the statistics. Standard Life and Imperial Oil Sheelagh Whittaker supports the concept of quotas for women to increase female board membership beyond the 10 percent level.
