Half of women sitting on corporate boards of directors around the world support quota systems to fix stubborn gender imbalances in the boardroom, but less than 10 percent of their male colleagues agree, said a study released this week. Female directors are also more likely than men to approve of term limits and mandatory retirement ages to change corporate board membership, said the survey by Harvard Business School researchers, the WomenCorporateDirectors Foundation and Spencer Stuart, a consulting firm. Male directors, particularly older men, say there is a “lack of qualified female candidates,” it said. But female directors say diversity is not a board priority and traditional networks tend to be male-dominated, it said.
