THE MINISTER FOR Finance has said the Central Bank may be forced to take action if there is no improvement in diversity in the senior posts at Irish banks.
Speaking in the Dáil, Paschal Donohoe said this diversity extends beyond gender to include diversity in “personality types, educational background, ethnicity, and diversity of thought”.
The minister added that improving diversity in financial institutions can: “mitigate the risk of groupthink, improve decision-making, increase the effectiveness of internal challenge and enhance firm culture.”
Comments are good, people can see this for what it is, virtue signals from a delusional ideologue, how the fuck are so many of these nutjobs running the country. And seeing as women are far more likely to conform to a an existing system then men, im not sure how it would mitigate risks like groupthink etc.., more likely to do the opposite.The report found that 80% of the senior appointments between 2012 and 2017 were men.
In the most senior roles the gap was even more stark, with women comprising just 12% of applicants to the boards of Irish financial institutions.
The report noted that there have been some improvements in recent years, with the percentage of senior appointments in 2017 increasing to 29%.
