July was one of the racier news months...
Vince Cable came out in favour of quotas - views which we hold some sympathy for - but the Equality Commission gave a big "thumbs down" to the idea of all-female shortlists. Our best head-hunters have been making more positive noises recently about talented women but probably breathed a collective sigh of relief on the news.
Childcare news and the Care Act
The IPPR produced its final report on the childcare industry. It's long! And sadly misguided - supply side funding will only work if there is clarity on objectives and more money in the pot.
And the Care Act came into being, meaning that ALL carers are now recognised - about time too.
And finally, interesting research from LBS's study of 600 businesses; flexible working will lead to changes in office culture meaning the "introverts" will rise to the top!
