Patricia Dunn is stepping down as chairwoman of HP but will remain on the board. She should have resigned from HP entirely, and taken the entire board along with her. This fiasco – which is not over, as now Congress appears to be getting involved – has proven that neither she nor the board are fit to lead this company. She should have apologized in May after Perkins’ resignation, but has apparently waited until the heat began to pile on. This is a serious ethical problem; either Dunn does not understand that what she did was far worse than leaking information to a reporter or is simply trying to save face, knowing full well that it was wrong. In either case, she is not qualified to be on the board. If the rest of the board has refused to impose serious sanctions on her, then neither is the rest of the board.
