The First Phase in Diversity is Counting.

And there are 141 countries in which there is no data to date, according to Irene Natividad, Chair of the Corporate Women Directors International and President of the Global Summit of Women.

To use her words, "that is pathetic."

The other steps?

Quotas. Corporate Governance Codes/Stock Exchange/Securities Exchange Commission Initiatives. Making the business case. Advocacy (especially from institutional investors).

And women ought to be in--and taking part in--all of those entities.

  1. That's incredible - 141 countries? Are international organizations getting involved in the counting?
