“……… companies that have women on their boards do better. I am a strong believer that diversity enhances boards, but all-too-often we hear the complaint that qualified women are difficult to find. We know that that isn’t so, but sometimes women who are fully qualified do not know of their real strengths, nor do they succeed in projecting their aptitudes. Mentoring can often be of help. It can build up confidence in candidates, it can teach them about corporate boards, and it can set them on a course for success.”
