Summary
After realizing that the business she founded lacked women in key management roles, Hilary Devey set out a plan of action. In this program, Devey explores ways to create a more equitable male-to-female ratio in business. Traveling to Norway, where a quota system now requires companies to award 40% of board positions to women, she learns how change is implemented - and whether the new women board members are merely "tokens." Devey also assesses alternatives, such as changing the corporate culture, mentoring of female colleagues, and sharing childcare duties with one's spouse.
