JLK: Looks like Germany may join France, Iceland, Norway and Spain in mandating women in leadership roles at companies. Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government has adopted a bill that will require large companies listed on Germany’s DAX index to fill at least 30 percent of their board seats with female non-executive directors. The bill will also require large and mid-size German companies to employ more women as managers. If passed by Parliament, the mandate would take effect in 2016.
