Despite progress, the following statistics on workplace diversity should trouble you: Ernst and Young recently did a study which found that more CEOs of large U.S. companies are named John (5.3%) than there are CEOs who are women (4.1%); there is not even a single solitary openly gay CEO of a Fortune 500 company; and Career Builder found that only 35% of women feel confident that compensation is dispensed equitably between the genders.

Why should business leaders care? Well, there are several good reasons.

First, there is an ever-growing business case for maintaining a diverse workforce including studies from MIT and McKinsey that show a gender neutral and diverse workforce is correlated to increases in revenue.  However, beyond the bottom line, some executives see it as the right thing to do, and as the father of two girls, I fall squarely into this camp.
