      Janet Yellen Makes Her First Comments As The The New US Fed Chief Tomorrow — Here's What You Need To Know

      On Tuesday, Janet Yellen will offer her first public remarks as chair of the Federal Reserve in the central bank's semi-annual testimony before Congress on monetary policy.

      Women on Boards: Tokenism or Best Practice?

      New Herbalife Convertible Struggling On Nasty Day: An Update

      Early today I wrote about the billion-dollar convertible bond Herbalife (NYSE: HLF) announced this morning. This bond is the latest salvo in the fight between activist investor Bill Ackman, who thinks Herbalife is a pyramid scheme and has wagered accordingly, and the company.  Herbalife is planning to use a large portion of the new bond’s proceeds to buy back its stock, trying to offset Ackman’s recent upper hand...

      Women on Boards: Another Year, Another Disappointment by Boris Groysberg and Deborah Be

      “Still No Progress After Years of No Progress,” reads Catalyst’s recently released 2013 census of women directors and executive officers in the Fortune 500. Indeed, the news is not good: the percentage of women directors in the Fortune 500 at 16.9% has remained flat (it was 16.6% in 2012 and 16.1% in 2011). Why, when there’s so much conversation about the topic, are the numbers not moving?

      Kicking Bill Gates Off The Board Is The Best Thing Microsoft Can Do (MSFT)

      Microsoft is an insanely profitable company standing on the edge of disaster. It desperately needs new thinking.  With word that 22-year Microsoft veteran Satya Nadella is likely the new CEO, attention turns to the leadership of the company's board of directors.
