gender equality within his or her company based in Belgium.
President, Global Managing Director Malt
"Embracing diversity is critical. Society is changing and we have to evolve with it. Studies have proven that companies embracing diversity perform better. As a leader I take this seriously and act as role model to support gender equity. It is my accountability to spread the word to all women in organisations that if they want to have a career, they can and we will support them to do so!"
Alexander Von Maillot
CEO at NESTLE Belgilux SA-NV
"My vision is to make gender equality discussions obsolete because we reached a status where it is a natural behaviour of leaders and organisations to respect and treat equally women and men."
General Director ACTIRIS
"To me, diversity and gender equality are a pride, a wealth and a strength.
In terms of individual actions, I took paternity leave and encourage others to do the same, I openly reject manrupting and all forms of discrimination and I pay attention to equal gender participation in my day-to day activities."
