Yvonne Abraham: Many companies’ boards are for men only, still – The Boston Globe

Oh, no he didn’t! I called Safety Insurance president, CEO, and chairman of the board David Brussard a couple of days ago to ask him one simple question. Why is there not a single woman on his company’s board or executive team? I was curious about this after reading a report released earlier in the day by the Boston Club, which found that, overall, the biggest public companies in supposedly-progressive Massachusetts do a lousy job of putting women in corner offices and boardrooms. Safety Insurance is a member of the not-exclusive-enough zero-zero club – zero women on the board, zero women in top executive positions. Imagine my joy when Brussard answered his own line on Thursday afternoon. I introduced myself and politely asked him why Safety is the way it is. He promptly hung up on me. Oh, yes he did!

Helen Forlani‘s insight:

Have a good day!
