Research from McMaster University in Ontario revealed that women's abilities to make fair decisions when competing interests are at stake make them better corporate leaders. Specifically, the study found that women are more likely to consider the rights of others and to take a cooperative approach to decision-making, which ultimately translates into better performance for their companies.
"Our findings show that having women on the board is no longer just the right thing, but also the smart thing to do," said by Chris Bart, a study co-author and professor of strategic management at McMaster University. "Companies with few female directors may actually be shortchanging their investors."
"Women seem to be predisposed to be more inquisitive and to see more possible solutions," said Gregory McQueen, one of the study's co-authors and a McMaster graduate. "At the board level, where directors are compelled to act in the best interest of the corporation while taking the viewpoints of multiple stakeholders into account, this quality makes them more effective corporate directors."
This fits better into a Business section, but since there is no such thing this section seemed the most unfittingly fitting..
