Kasich Diversity Disappointment Again w/JobsOhio Board

One woman out of eight appointees. From the Columbus Dispatch:

The board, appointed by Kasich, consists of Kvamme, Ohio State University President E. Gordon Gee, former Ernst & Young and Cleveland Cavaliers executive James Boland, Bob Evans executive Steven A. Davis, the Cleveland Clinic’s C. Martin Harris, Marathon Petroleum’s Gary Heminger, Procter & Gamble’s Bob McDonald, and Pamela Springer of Manta Media.

Kvamme said a ninth board member would be appointed within 60 days. Board members will serve staggered terms and without pay.

And if you’re curious, there are two non-white males out of the eight appointees.  While this is a better diversity percentage than in the Kasich cabinet, for women, who contribute 4.6 million individuals to the Ohio workforce, just one voice.

One thought on “Kasich Diversity Disappointment Again w/JobsOhio Board

  1. I thought the same thing when I saw the list of names. I think there is also a lack of diversity regarding different points of view. These are all successful business people. Is that the only voice you want in the room? I can see groupthink going on all over the place.
