      California's Board Diversity Law Led to 670 Board Seats Filled by Women, Report Finds

      California has had a rough few months. There was the summer surge in COVID cases, wildfires that set grim new records—officials have now announced that 4 million acres have been burned throughout the state—and the subsequent toxic, smoke-filled air that enveloped the West Coast, sometimes for weeks on end.
