"My life’s work is about leadership and when I see a gap, I’m compelled to do something about it. The world has a significant gap in gender equity at the most senior levels of corporate governance and senior leadership. I want to do all I can to ensure that this is not the case going forward, and I believe that working together, this network can make a significant difference in our lifetime."
