Does Gender Diversity Improve Performance?

When i attended the Womensphere in New York this fall one of the most important points regarding women in executive roles was brought to my attention via a recent survey from Credit Suisse. Namely:

Its about Gender Diversity...

Over the past six years, companies with at least some female board representation outperformed those with no women on the board in terms of share price performance, according to the latest study by the Credit Suisse Research Institute.

This is pretty heavy stuff, they have actually quantified the fact that if you hire women in executive positions, in this case at Board level, it will impact your organization beneficially. I would love it if more people would read this article and comment back. I welcome your feedback!   :)
