The Best Man for the Job is a Wo-Man.

This is from a Workforce Week article Carol received commenting on the firing of Carly Fiorina as it relates to the number of women in top management.

"A recent Catalyst study of 353 Fortune 500 companies reveals that companies suffer when there is a lack of women at the top. The data shows that from 1996 to 2000, companies with the highest representation of women in top management achieved 34 percent to 35 percent better financial performance (as measured by return on equity and total return to shareholders) than the companies with below-average female representation."

This is the link to the full article.

I commented on Carly in an earlier post.
