Good to see Kathy Gyngell articulating some home truths that spineless business leaders and major employers’ organisations won’t in their relentless pandering to women, regardless of the impact. We see the same spinelessness with respect to increasing the proportion of women on corporate boards, with the FTSE100, CBI, and the government in an unholy alliance driving this initiative forward, despite being aware it will lead to corporate financial decline. It will in due course be extended to ever-smaller companies – the government is known to have a target of gender parity on FTSE350 boards – and will have a disproportionate impact on smaller companies.
