Today is international women’s day celebrating the achievements of women and promoting gender equality.
When I think about gender equality, I have been fortunate enough that my first three bosses were female. I am fortunate because it became normal for me that women have leadership positions.
It made me realize that we often focus on gender diversity in the context of board diversity and top management jobs. Even though those are important indicators and need to improve, I think that change starts at the bottom. To so to speak break the glass ceiling, we need to offer the opportunity for women to get through the ranks to get to the top. It all starts at the bottom.
