How the Nature Conservancy, one of the wealthiest green groups in the world, became a chummy, corporate-friendly boy's club filled with sexual discrimination & harassment:  https://www.politico.com/story/2019/07/07/nature-conservancy-discrimination-leadership-turnover-1399149 

TL;DR: a rich white dude hired a bunch of other rich white dudes. Everything else pretty much follows from that.

I gotta say, if I'm hiring for a high-profile management or leadership job, I'm going to do my best to hire a woman. Never mind the moral/historical/etc. arguments -- just for purely prudential reasons! Men's egos & entitlement regularly diminish job performance & hurt orgs.

And yes, this thinking applies directly to the presidential race.
