“HP has a strong legacy of championing diversity & inclusion in the workplace. We are proud to have one of the most diverse boards of directors of any U.S.-based technology company – consisting of 40% women and 25% underrepresented minorities. For HP, supporting efforts that promote diversity & inclusion for all underrepresented groups is a business imperative.” – HP Inc.

 

I support (Bill SB 826) as a step toward the day when boards are really reflective of the shareholders, customers, and society at large. It’s a statement in general and a declaration that the existing system is biased against common sense and good governance. And every board needs to wake up to that and start to fix it.” -Bracken Darrell, President & CEO at Logitech

 

“With #MeToo Movement, Women’s March, Bill SB-826 passing, many women in government in 2018, it is a momentous time for changes women in the workplace (Impact on women in leadership/women on the board). Let’s no longer work in silos. We are stronger TOGETHER at Changing The Ratio!” – Marina Lee, Co-Founder MIDA Women On The Board Initiative at MIDA Institute and Foundation

 

“No matter how we view quotas, in some cases we need them at least to get started and reinforce the issue until it becomes implicit. There is ample research that shows us companies with more than 3 women on the board are more innovative and productive than their peers.” – Leila Hunziker, Co-Founder MIDA Women On The Board Initiative at MIDA Institute and Foundation
