Summary "There are relatively few women in senior executive positions and on the boards of major companies. Based upon their professional experience, research and in the context of contemporary management debates, the authors make the case for promoting women to the board in order to create more value for shareholders. The book draws upon interviews with FTSE 100 and Fortune 500, chairmen, chief executives, women directors and headhunters, and includes case study material."--BOOK JACKET
