Revealed: females make up less than 10 per cent of top 100's equity partner ranks
Good point by anonolady. I agree, men and women do tend to feel more comfortable doing business with their own gender. This currently may impede the potential of women to build their own client base, which is unfair. However, similarly, hr departments tend to be largely, and often solely comprised of women, who look more favourably on female candidates. Around 2/3 of trainees are female.
Therefore, if there should be quotas for female partners, should there also be quotas for male trainees? Or does discrimination only work one way?
