Life Balance is a Fundamental, Human Right. Let’s make it easier to find.

“For my daughter.” “For my young female future leaders.” “For my husband.” “For society’s tomorrow.” The room resounded with different personal reasons as we debated, why? Why were we setting up a gender equality network? Why did this advertising conglomerate need to embrace this year’s hot topic?
