#GoodRead | Think there's a shortage of qualified women for boards? You're wrong
For the past year, TheBoardList has not only been addressing the issue [of the low percentage of women on boards], but trying to learn more about it. Its answer to the concern that there isn't enough talent: 1,200 qualified potential board members — all women. Forty-two percent already have board experience, and the others come with endorsements from C-level business leaders and investors.
"There's really a discovery problem and a perception of the breadth of candidates — more than a problem in reality with whether there's a big enough pipeline of candidates," said TheBoardList founder and CEO Sukhinder Singh Cassidy.
