New Data: Global Diversity Lacks Among Boards With International Presence

globeWe’re not saying boards remaining American is a bad thing but when you look at data from companies thriving on international revenue, lack of diversity on their boards could eventually hurt them in the end.

“Balance is bunk,” says the author. It’s a “misguided metaphor” because it assumes trade-offs must exist between work or school, family, community and self. He suggests looking at four-way wins to improve your life within all four dimensions.

As Friedman describes embracing principles to be whole, real and innovative, we’re going to focus on being whole. This means acting with integrity and respecting that all of the roles you play make up a whole person.  Read more
