Women account for only a small percentage of board seats at Fortune 500 companies, raising the question as to whether quotas would be a good way to close the gap. "We had to have Title IX in order to force something to happen for girls [in the arena of education and sports]. So my thought process is, we're probably going to have to have quotas," said Gail Romero of MBA Women International. But instituting quotas would likely be poorly received in the U.S., and it wouldn't necessarily be good for women, according to Caren Goldberg of the Kogod School of Business at American University.
