Top open source, tech-smart, board-ready women executives
Technology, in general, and open source, in specific, is often seen as a boy's club. There's a lot of truth to that. In 2019, out of the 2,765 Morgan Stanley Capital International All-Country World Index (MSCI/ACWI) companies, only 20% of directors were women in 2019.
That's a bad thing and not just for women leaders. Studies show that employee productivity is significantly higher for companies with three or more women on their boards. That means both higher profits and dividend payouts. As the Bloomberg editorial board recently pointed out, if companies really cared about doing what's best for shareholders they'd have more women leaders.
