A recent report from the Equality and Human Rights Commission ‘Sex and Power’ showed that women’s progress has slowed to a ‘snail’s pace’ and has gone into reverse in many of the areas surveyed.
There has been quite a bit of publicity recently about the rush to comply with the legal requirement to have 40% of women on the boards of Norwegian companies by 1 January 2008.
Meeting this obligation appears to have been a struggle for many companies, despite a 5 year lead time.
A person can perform only from strength. One cannot build performance on weaknesses, let alone something one cannot do at all.
