Hire the most qualified candidates, but have blind interviews or blind applications. Remove any indication of biases such as name, race, gender. relevant experience and qualifications on a resume are all that should be required. When people say “hire the most qualified candidate” it’s a dog whistle that usually means, “don’t change the way applications and interviews are done because then it won’t inherently benefit the white male like me.”

Required? No, due to the fact that it would go against everything else I said with choice. It should not be discrimination, the best person win. I also think that diversity director should be required to make sure these things aren't happening.

@B3NBZ4QPeace and Freedom from New York answered…2mos

Yes, but only publicly traded companies should be required to maintain a gender ratio in board leadership

@SeanKerseyPeace and Freedom from Virginia answered…2mos

No unless the business is large enough. That being said, I support affirmative action as a whole because diversity and helping marginalized groups is important.

@Mya-BeauLibertarian from Illinois answered…2wks

No, but buisnesses should have to share how diverse their board of directors is.

@B4BRR2PGreen from Missouri answered…3wks

No, but it should be encouraged to look at minorities and women as candidates, the whole culture needs to change

@B4B94HNPeace and Freedom from California answered…4wks

No, it should not be a strict requirement, however, there should be prioritization and increase in women in positions of business leadership

@B49KXGNWomen’s Equality from Missouri answered…4wks

No, board members should be the most qualified regardless of gender but the slate of candidates should represent the business and it's customers.

@B43NNTZWomen’s Equality from Pennsylvania answered…1mo

i think as long as they earned their spot to be there then yes. they shouldn't be discriminated against or denied it because of their gender.

@B427S7JRepublican from Illinois answered…1mo

No, board members should be the most qualified regardless of gender. Also, the government should never require the diversity of private businesses

@B3Y38J5Peace and Freedom from Indiana answered…2mos

No, board members should be hired based on qualifications, having requirements in positions based on someone's identity is forced diversity

@B3RQ7WFPeace and Freedom from Wisconsin answered…2mos

No, not required, but more needs to be done by the federal government to improve diversity in the workplace, especially in leadership positions.

@9LMMPN6Republican from Tennessee answered…2yrs

If there are women interested in the position they should be given the role

@9LJPHQ9Women’s Equality from Florida answered…2yrs

Yes, but only if they pass all requirements, not just because they are women.

@9L9BDV4Peace and Freedom from Washington answered…2yrs

They shouldn’t hire those of diversity just to fill a quota but they should be encouraged to include them. However, it should be mandatory if women’s rights or issues are involved

@9L74YLXPeace and Freedom from Minnesota answered…2yrs

It shouldn't be a requirement, but we should still be hiring women for senior management positions (particularly women of color)

@9K7K6DQPeace and Freedom from Connecticut answered…2yrs

No, I would like to see more representation of women but I don’t think someone should be hired because of their gender - every employee should be qualified and hired fairly regardless of gender

@9K7C7N5Women’s Equality from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

No, but they should be allowed. Women probably want to earn the position.

@9K4XY3YWomen’s Equality from Michigan answered…2yrs

No, but the government should offer an incentive for companies that have a certain percentage of women on their board.

@9JXV5Y5Constitution from West Virginia answered…2yrs

It shouldnt matter what gender, as long as theyre doing what is best for the business and dont bring sexism into anything.

@9JWJ9BTRepublican from Texas answered…2yrs

They should be allowed but it needs to be based off of qualifications not gender

@9JVLRNVPeace and Freedom from North Carolina answered…2yrs

@9JSGBW8Women’s Equality from Alabama answered…2yrs

No, board members should be the most qualified regardless of gender, but instead encourage diversity in applicants and in their company.

@9JFP92BDemocrat from Maryland answered…2yrs

The choice should be made based on qualifications, but men and women should have the same opportunities to reach that level of qualification.

@9JF4N7FAmerican Solidarity from Virginia answered…2yrs

I don't think it should be required but they should be allowed to.

@9J997J7Socialist from Oregon answered…2yrs

Yes, women, african-american, and latinx people should be included to increase diversity and equality in all private or public offices and businesses

@9J7HQRHConstitution from Louisiana answered…2yrs

Businesses shouldn’t be required to do anything. Let capitalism run its course and if the market dislikes the business, the business will fail.

Sex discrimination is illegal. An individual who is the most qualified due to succesful experience, education, and skill should determine the best fit.

@9HX5WWKLibertarian from Tennessee answered…2yrs

Government should not determine how business operate and employ people.

@9HT8PRSPeace and Freedom from Illinois answered…2yrs

No. We should take a more comprehensive approach to ending inequities based on gender.

@9HT7ZBNIndependent from Massachusetts answered…2yrs

No, but they would be foolish not to as companies with women on their boards consistently outperform comparable organizations that do not.

@9HQN9ZCWomen’s Equality from Louisiana answered…2yrs

I think that anyone regardless of gender identity, sexual preference, religion, culture, ethnicity, etc. should have equal chances of getting that spot but only those who are qualified for that job can get it. There shouldn't be any place that businesses can find a loophole to get who they want based on gender, or anything like that, on that spot.

@9HPWMMZPeace and Freedom from California answered…2yrs

Yes, but we really just need the most qualified people on the board regardless of gender identity.

@9HPD2QTWomen’s Equality from California answered…2yrs

No but change should be made to exclude race as much as possible from the process.

@Debbie-ColigadoWomen’s Equality from Illinois answered…2yrs

No, but there should be an incentive to make their board selection process public knowledge to prove the most qualified people are being selected regardless of gender.

@John-LeMayLibertarian from California answered…2yrs

No, it’s their house their rules. Don’t like it, build a better stronger house that destroys theirs.

@9HGZKPYWomen’s Equality from Florida answered…2yrs

Yes, but regardless of gender, a person should only be given a role if they are the most qualified for that position.
