Chelsea Clinton And IAC: While Some Companies Argue About Women On Boards, IAC Just Does It

While others debate whether boards should have one woman or two or three, whether quotas should be mandated or not, where on earth to find a woman who has adequate experience or intellect, and whether or not a woman might degrade shareholder value, IAC/InterActiveCorp did something bold.
 
This leading global internet company elected two women directors who will each contribute unique value to the IAC board:  Chelsea Clinton, 31, who is pursuing a doctorate at Oxford University and is working at the Clinton Global Initiative; and Sonali de Rycker, 38, a general partner at Accel Partners, where she focuses on investments in the consumer Internet and digital media sectors.
 
Any company that seeks to compete in the global marketplace will be wise to follow IAC’s example.
