The important point here is that the GMAT ﬁgures and the relative leakiness of the female half of the board pipeline indicate a basic incompatibility between corporate cultures and modern women. Is it intrinsic and, therefore, incorrigible, or the detritus of the company’s masculine origins that will be washed away by time and the exigencies of competition? And how does the company’s inherent masculinity express itself today? If it survives, it is deeply rooted in the company’s evolutionary past and Companies are Kingdoms largely hidden from view.
