From time to time I’m asked why I do what I do.
So here’s a short (59 second) introduction on why gender balance at the top of organisations matters to me.
Sometimes people say to me “but things are getting better”. Yes, they are. But they aren’t changing fast enough. We simply can not wait for gender parity to occur naturally - the World Economic Forum this year estimated we are still 99.5 years away from gender equality at current rates of change.
I want my daughter to experience gender equality in her lifetime. Not in her grandchildren’s lifetimes.
I’d love to hear why this topic is important to you.
