‘Diversity’ is the most commonly used term in an organizational setup these days. And it is completely justifiable because it helps in getting together the best talents available in the market. This is why most of the organizations are working hard towards creating a healthy diverse environment in their workplace. However, when we look at the board rooms, the situation is quite opposite.
According to a recent survey, it has been found that women occupy only 18% of the board seats in the biggest companies. This is quite a disparity. Women too are highly educated, have good skills and are great performers, yet they do not get adequate representation on the boards.
We can think of two obvious reasons. Either women have never thought about considering a board membership or they do not know how to start their journey towards securing a board seat.
Lately, we have seen that organizations are showing an increased interest in appointing a woman as a member of their board because they have understood that without a good number of female board members, they are probably losing a large amount of talent and thereby, a good place in the market. However, the problem arises that the organizations are unable to find women candidates who are qualified and are genuinely interested in joining the board.
Global Hunt steps in right here. We are proud of our expertise in board search and we truly believe that organizations can work far better if there are efficient women in the board rooms and also in other senior positions. Therefore, we enthusiastically participate in the mission of bringing passionate, authentic and skilled women to board rooms.
