A Q&A in the July 22 issue of Latin America Advisor raises the issue of lack of gender diversity in Latin American top executive teams. “Why is there such a lack of women in powerful seats running companies or sitting on boards in the region?” “What needs to change in the industry or education in order to help make room for future female executives?”

School of Business Dean Sylvia Maxfield’s response to these questions appeared among the answers:

“The percentage of women on boards is creeping up thanks to a growing understanding that diverse boards are good boards” Maxfield is quoted as saying in the article. “Women and men in powerful roles should make sure to encourage their colleagues to search broadly and outside their networks for new board members.”

    Hola. I have a draft of a book about global youth activism. I’m looking for someone to critique the section on Latin America. Suggestions? Many thanks.

      Hi Gayle,

      I’ve asked Sylvia whether there’s anyone she might suggest, and she said she’ll mull this over.

      Thanks for reaching out!
