QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“When you look at the numbers at the top, C-level jobs, board-level jobs, it’s still very much a white-dominated male group, so we really want to figure out what are the real barriers. And what we’re focused on is a five-point action plan for companies that will help them achieve women’s leadership over time and gives them a roadmap for how to begin to make a difference on the whole aspect of women’s leadership.“
                                      -- Ann Drake, CEO of DSC Logistics, on Paradigm for Parity
