Gender-balancing: countries, companies & couples defy history

Having seen how countries, companies and couples can benefit from a gender-balanced world, Avivah explores the impact and profitability of gender equality on our society, and the two elements needed to achieve and maintain it: will and skill. Avivah Wittenberg-Cox is an author and authority on leadership, gender and business. She is also CEO of a leading gender consultancy, 20-first, that works with progressive global companies to gender-balance their workforce. Having witnessed significant advances toward gender equality, she is keen to help others fulfil their relationship potential and defy the traditional notion of choosing one partner for life. Her latest book Late Love explores the notion that everyone may have three mates during their life; their first love, their spouse and co-parent to their children and finally their soulmate. Building on that idea, Avivah focuses on the third phase of love—a deep, wise and nourishing relationship—and encourages women to reevaluate and redesign their relationships. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
