Nasdaq is proposing a rule that would require at least some measure of diversity on the boards of directors of companies listed on the exchange.

The rule, which needs the approval of the Securities and Exchange Commission to take effect, would require companies to have at least two diverse directors, including one woman and one member of an "underrepresented" minority group, including Black people, Latinos or members of the LGBTQ+ community. Smaller companies and foreign companies on the exchange could comply with two woman directors.

Companies also would be required to disclose "consistent, transparent diversity statistics" about their boards. Assuming they are approved, the rules would require at least one diverse director within two years and two within four to five years, depending on the size of the company. A company could have its shares delisted from the exchange if it does not comply.

А вы все воюете прошлые войны и решаете, хорошо или плохо государственное вмешательство. И без государства можно многого добиться, было бы классовое сознание.

В связи с политикой Насдака стоит вспомнить подходящую цитату из Шолом-Алейхема:
