Gender bias forced me to quit Quiksilver’s board

Liz Dolan, Fox International Channel’s CMO, speaks out about why she resigned from her position as the only woman serving on Quicksilver’s board: “The directors also told me I was kept out of the discussions because they thought I would “be too conflicted.” I tried to explain to each of these directors that some directors are not more equal than others. I was elected to the board because I am an accomplished global marketer, which is what Quiksilver needed, not because I was the CEO’s friend. I wish they had seen me as an accomplished professional, as their peer.”
