Francesca Lagerberg, Grant Thornton Intnl - Gormless Feminist Of The Month

Mike Buchanan: Francesca Lagerberg works for Grant Thornton International, as its 'Global Leader - Tax Services'. Her interview with Sarah Montague on Today, the flagship BBC Radio morning news programme, was painful to listen to, for anyone who understands that causal links exist between increasing female representation on corporate boards, and corporate financial DECLINE. Her comments about gender diversity on corporate boards made her a particularly worthy winner of our 'Gormless Feminist of the Month' award.
Particular gems included:

2:24 - 'As ever, this is about correlation, it's not necessarily about causation.'

3:39 - 'I'd like to hope the commercial argument is the strongest argument of all.'

Our blog piece on the matter is here http://tinyurl.com/FrancescaLagerbergGTI. We've also posted a link to this matter on the website of our associated organization Campaign for Merit in Business http://c4mb.wordpress.com.
