Deborah Merril on the Rosenzweig Report

“We see from studies such as the Rosenzweig Report that although Canada has experienced growth in recent years in the number of women appointed to senior ranks, the proportion of top female executives has climbed more slowly. That I’m only one of a handful of women occupying the chief executive role within Canada’s publicly-traded companies underscores this sluggish pace of progress. If you look at some of the most successful organizations, it is no coincidence that you will find strong gender diversity up the management chain. Diversity brings alternate, unique experiences and perspectives that enable better problem-solving, and contribute to stronger operational efficiency and organizational performance. Without this balance, the glass ceiling moves from a gender limitation to an organizational weakness.”
