Female CEOs and senators disproportionately blond

Slate reported on research by Jennifer Berdahl and Natalya Alonso, professors at UBC’s Sauder School of Business.

The researchers found that two per cent of the global population and five per cent of white people in the U.S. have blonde hair, but 35 per cent of female U.S. senators and 48 percent of female CEOs at S&P 500 companies are blonde.
