This week the DISH Women’s Network is inspired by the outpouring of actions for International Women’s Day. One particular action stands out as a true change catalyst.
State Street Global Advisors, an investor unit within State Street Corp, has unveiled a new statue on Wall Street: a young girl defiantly standing in front of the Bull on Wall Street.
They have input the statue to encourage and challenge boards to increase the number of women on their boards. Companies that fail to increase the number of women will be voted against boards by the Advisors.
We applaud this effort as not only symbolic but as a true action of change.
