Podcast: Boardrooms so white and male? That’s changing
California requires each publicly traded company based in the Golden State to have at least one woman on its board of directors and, soon, at least one nonwhite or LGBTQ person. That’s because of a pair of laws mandating diversity at those high levels — laws that are having effects nationwide.
Today, we examine the topic with L.A. Times national reporter Evan Halper. We also talk with Dr. Maria Rivas, who has served on several boards and frequently found herself the only woman or person of color there.
Host: Gustavo Arellano
Guests: L.A. Times national reporter Evan Halper and EMD Serono Chief Medical Officer Dr. Maria Rivas
