'It's the right thing to do,' shareholder says, but Tim Hortons still won't add women to its board
A proposal to create a formal diversity policy at the parent company of Tim Hortons and Burger King aimed at increasing the number of women on its all-male board of directors has been rejected. Before Tim Hortons and Burger King merged and became RBI in late 2014, a quarter of the Tim Hortons board was comprised of women, according to the shareholder proposal. Now RBI's 11-person board of directors is all male.
