AshleyMaidson.com (“AM”) has been referred to as the premier website for married individuals seeking partners for extra-marital affairs. For the record, I know that only after reading about the recent hacking of it, discussed below!

I recommend you do not check that website at your home or work. There could be personal or professional consequences.

By way of background, in July, a group of hackers stole sensitive customer information from the infidelity website. This week, the hackers made good on their threat to post customer names on line.

What if you find out that one of your employees is an AM customer? Can you fire him or her? Do you want to fire him or her?

I am pleased to share with you a blog I wrote for Talent Culture.

I confess I am tired of hearing about how we need to increase gender equality. No duh. How do you get there? I don’t know of any magic bullet but here are my 12 suggestions. Each of these could be a separate book, let alone a separate blog.

  1. Increase The Gender Representation On Your Board of Directors

Where the board of a company has at least one woman on its board, it is likely to crush the competition. Unlike in the employment context, you can specifically target women for positions on the Board. No discrimination issues.
