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.”
No. Let them choose the gender mix (or lack thereof), let them reveal the degree of commitment to diversity, so that potential customers and clients can choose whether or not to do business with them accordingly.
Only men should be allowed as board members.
Where is the argument here? Studies have shown women and men being near identical in levels of intelligence, and women are able to accomplish just as much as men are. Don't try to "discuss" a topic you clearly haven't educated yourself on with zero back up argument or evidence.
Too many people on the left claim that we on the right are somehow sexist. Let me disprove that. Per Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s logic, I believe that if someone is qualified for the job, then the job should be theirs, regardless of gender. The ones who are actually sexist are the ones who decided to make gender an issue in the first place!
The gender should not matter. If someone earned their way to be on the board of directors, it should never matter what their gender, ethnicity, religion, etc., is. Everyone that desires to be given a chance if they are attempting to be on the board of directors. Women, men, and all colored people should not be added to the board just because of what their gender identity or physical characteristics are.
There are many qualified women in the working world, it shouldnt be hard to find one. But there shouldnt be a quota just to have 'diversity' thats stupid and companies should already be hiring a diverse scope of people. If the board is just a large collection of old white dudes then they should go look for new hires .
While the option, “No, board members should be the most qualified regardless of gender” sounds good in theory; in practice, this doesn’t hold true. Thus, action is required despite the goal being no action required
