Glencore Sexist Remarks

Grr…..Recently in England, the new chairman of Glencore International AG, Simon Murray has faced criticism since he made disparaging remarks about half the population. He commented to the Sunday Telegraph that “pregnant ladies have nine months off” and that women “have a tendency not to be so involved quite often…[and are not] so ambitious in business.” He continued, saying “Do you think that means that when I rush out, what I’m absolutely desperate to have is young women who are about to get married in my company, and that I really need them on the board because I know they’re going to get pregnant and they’re going to go off for nine months?” Murray’s statements have been called “inappropriate, ill-judged, and disappointing.” by many including Lord Davies, who led a recent inquiry into male dominance in the boardrooms of organizations in the U.K. If given the chance I would like to ask Simon Murray, who are the ones marrying these young women and having children? Also, have you considered your company will be short important resources in the future if young couples don’t have families?!?
