As it may or may not have occurred among the elite businessfolk of the world, there are not a ton of female directors on top U.S. company boards. Alarming stat: 40 percent of large, American companies have no women on their boards at all, according to a recent report from the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School. And among S&P’s top 10 companies, women comprise just 22 percent of board members. These are not statistics that encourage a gal. Luckily, it would appear that some of top business schools in the U.S. are joining forces to change this male-dominant trend.
