In the last week of May, the 30% Club and UN Foundation co-hosted a CEO briefing about the Generation Equality Forum (GEF) with an audience that was likely the biggest ever single meeting for business leaders about gender equality.
Ann Cairns, Global Chair at 30% Club, moderated the conversation with Melinda French Gates and Ivan Menezes (Chief Executive of Diageo). Both Melinda and Ivan have deep roots in making diversity and gender equality a priority and spoke about the initiatives they have taken to make these goals a reality.
The briefing also included words from Peter Grauer (Bloomberg), Sharon Thorne (Deloitte), Francesco Ceccato (Barclays Europe), Michael Miebach (Mastercard), and Vidya Shah (EdelGive Foundation). From the discussion, eight key themes were highlighted.
