Social dynamics and traditional gender roles have changed substantially in the past five decades, allowing women to move into roles of power and embrace leadership opportunities in both business and politics. But unfortunately, we are still a long way from reaching gender parity. Most people agree that including a greater range of voices at any table is a positive thing, but what most don’t consider is that there are very strong business cases for this as well. In fact, companies with more women in leadership roles tend to make more money, create better products and have more loyal customers, advancing the argument for greater female participation from the softer “a good thing to do” to a financially smart decision. At HLB, we seek to champion diversity and inclusion whenever and wherever possible. In honour of International Women’s Day, we encourage the HLB global community to embrace the benefits of gender equality and discover that when we #BalanceforBetter, we can build better businesses. ‘’When you’re a CEO, you’re in the unique position to make an impact on the lives of the people in your organisation through the example you set as a leader.
