Laura Ahto

CEO, The Bank of New York Mellon


"I believe that gender diversity, and in fact diversity more broadly, is critical to innovation through all sectors and a fundamental part of a company’s ability to maintain a sustainable operating model. Women will play a crucial role to the future of Europe’s economy and we all must work harder to create a deep pool of diverse talent from graduates to the top - and not just executive leadership pipelines. So much progress has already been made – we need to work together to move forward further and I am eager to support this as best as I can!"

Pascale Van Damme

VP & Managing Director Dell EMC BeLux


We have been talking about gender equality for some years now, it is no longer a new topic. Let’s be cautious of “gender fatigue” – we have made progress but it is far too slow: the World "Economic Forum now estimates that gender parity may be over 170 years away, whereas In 2014 it was 80 years... I believe in diversity in gender, culture, and age in my own organisation, but just as much in our education, government institutions, and society as a whole. Action starts with leading by example and by creating an environment where all employees can be authentic and feel at home."
