The curious case of a paper chit in the IMF Chief’s purse!

While at Davos this year, I heard a journalist friend recall a chat she hadFullSizeRender with IMF Chief Christian Lagarde where she said she was so tired of business leaders telling her that they wanted women execs on Boards but weren’t finding the right candidates that she started keeping a small piece of paper in her purse with names and numbers of 20 bright and accomplished women leaders she knew; and so the next time a man gave her that “excuse”, out came the paper!

Maybe everyone should have a secret chit in their bags after all. The “excuse” mafia needs to be brought down don’t you think?!
