Eighty two percent men on corporate boards

Congratulations to Alex Johnston the new executive director of Catalyst, an organization dedicated to advancing women. She is a Toronto lawyer with a gender-neutral name!

In a recent article she shared some statistics that show that women are still rare in  corporate boardrooms. No surprise except things are getting worse. So I say, rather than say that women make up 12 percent of Board positions we should say, men make up 82 percent of jobs that control the vast majority of money and power in Canada. How do we feel about that? Upset, I hope! (Source, Vancouver Sun 3 March 2014)
