Dear MEL Topic Readers,
10 'pitiful' excuses companies use not to hire women execs
Pay gap isn’t the only gender inequality in the U.K. (Vol.2190). Much fewer women are sitting on the board or taking senior positions in the corporations and even central bank in the kingdom where both the monarch and the prime minister are both females. The UK government disclosed 10 most common excuses by corporate execs why they hadn’t nominated women for the board or senior positions. Those excuses are shocking with full of discrimination and prejudice, such as “don't think women fit comfortably into the board environment,” and “other board colleagues wouldn't want to appoint a woman on our board."
Despite the government’s effort to narrow the gender inequality in pay and positions, there seems to be quite significant, prevailing boys’ club culture in the queendom. And please be reminded that this survey was conducted by the government whose head is a woman. What those respondents have in their mind could be even more staggering.
Enjoy reading and learn the perception that corporate executives have on women.
