In the news this week May 28th 2018

Dear Readers, A truncated effort this week, since it started with a Bank Holiday - and, really, shouldn’t we all be doing more with this blessed weather than just ruminate on matters of corporate governance and the ethics of AI? …then again, it is possible to do so and enjoy a few halves in a beer garden. Thinking about it, it might even be possible to do both at the same time, though one suspects the subject matter might change sooner rather than later.

  7. From the New York Times: 'Here’s Why British Firms Say Their Boards Lack Women. Prepare to Cringe'
