      Quotas are a Terrible Way to Promote Board Diversity. Companies Should Do This Instead

      The just-concluded 2018 elections have been referred to as a new " year of the woman ," as nearly 25% of all members of the next Congress will be female.

On one hand, I wanted to celebrate the new law...
