EU Business School Memo: “Here Are 3,500 Women You Can Put On Boards”

There’s a whole lot of drama in Europe (well, in this country too) over the fact that not enough women are represented on corporate boards — and there’s discussion that the EU may begin mandating that females take up a certain percentage of board seats. Important a topic as it may be, a lot of the discourse revolves around much complaining without much action. But at last! European business schools have taken very deliberate action — in the simplest way possible. By naming the thousands of women that companies should put on their boards.
Top business schools, like London Business School and Insead, today released a collaborative list of 3,500 female leaders who’d be good fits for corporate boards, the FT reports. The list includes alums, professors and board members at the schools.
Euro-zone companies, no more excuses: someone else just did the work for ya.
