Avivah Wittenberg-Cox

I am CEO of 20-first, a global gender-balance consultancy. I work with C-suite teams to achieve real gender balance by reframing the issue: on leadership, culture and systems. I facilitate politically incorrect debates that get leaders defining the strategic business opportunities of balance (and risks of not balancing). I have written a number of reference books in the field, including "Seven Steps to Leading Gender-Balanced Businesses," and "Why Women Mean Business: Understanding the Emergence of Our Next Economic Revolution." I speak on leadership, 'gender bilingual' marketing and talent management, and career issues across the globe, write for FORBES and Harvard Business Review, and lecture at HEC Business School. I believe gender balance offers companies, countries and couples huge - and still untapped - benefits. What are you waiting for?
