Lack of experience hinders diversity

Joann S. Lublin, WSJ, Apr 16, 2104, says the biggest companies are not making much progress bringing women and minorities into the boardroom.

This is because they get a few experienced board members in diverse categories and recycle them, instead of grooming new ones.

Therefore black women (34%) and Hispanic women (19.1%)and 19.8% of black men tend to have had more than one directorship.

I believe in some circles this would be called being in a rut.
