Women Will Destroy the World. Really?

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

A new report by Germany's central bank says women at the top of the banking industry spur their male colleagues to take bigger risks. Based on an analysis of German bank executive teams from 1994 to 2010, the Bundesbank study undermines the widely held view of the "calming influence" female staff have on a male-driven industry. The report – which also says the presence of women in senior roles was a contributing factor to the banking crash – has provoked a furious response.

Mary Ellen Iskenderian is the President and CEO of Women's World Banking.
