Ontario, Canada, is pushing to increase boardroom gender diversity, and American governance advocates are watching closely, according to Beverly Behan, a governance expert. The effort's success won't be judged solely on its ability to bring women into the boardroom, Behan wrote to Ontario regulators. "Success can and should only be declared if the proportion of women on Canadian boards has increased and it becomes commonly felt in the Canadian business community that the changes have made boards better," she noted.
