The event drew a sizeable audience of business and political leaders including Laura Tyson, former Chair of US President's Council of Economic Advisers. Under Michael’s moderation, the session explored why a consensus around the case for diversity had failed to deliver parity in business and why there was seemingly insufficient follow-through on good intentions. Drawing on a KPMG study of CEO views, Winning hearts and minds- How CEOs talk about gender parity, Michael debated the case for business leaders to embrace the emotional as well as the rational case for change.
