The Case of Women Directors 9th January 2018 professor Introduction Norwegian government imposed quotas on the percentage of women who should be on every board with no exception. The idea of including women in organization’s boards received different reactions and different opinions on what should be considered when determining who should be appointed to a board and whether it is gender or skills that matter during appointment. Whether women should just be elected to the board and leave out more competent men and whether setting the quotas is promoting a fair competition between men and women on the available opportunities.

Governments have to impose policies that will increase women representation because men feel threatened by women and they have a perception that they should rule over women. References Klenke K.
