    And why would I want to "..ensure senior positions attract applications from women.." ?
    I have a job that needs to done, it has certain demands about it. I just want the best person I can find to do that job - irrespective of their gender, ethnicity, sexuality or (surprise, surprise) their favourite colour.
    "More women" seems to be an answer seeking a question.
