Mahmoud Bah, Millennium Challenge Corporation: “This is the journey: not assuming that what you do today, even if it's good today, is going to be good tomorrow. Constantly collect data, look at results, make sure that what you had as a hypothesis is actually what translates into results.”
Richard Stallings, Novozymes: "It's going to take time. We didn't get to this point overnight, and therefore it cannot be fixed overnight. But we're starting to have those uncomfortable conversations & I've never seen that in 25 years. So I'm very proud of that."
Mahmoud Bah, Millennium Challenge Corporation: “With good intent, you accept that you can fix failure and you create an environment where people are not afraid to fail, so they can succeed.”
Rani Pooran, IFC: "We're paying a lot of attention to equal pay for equal work, and understanding the connection between pay gap and pay equity and representation in the workforce."
Mahmoud Bah, Millennium Challenge Corporation: "The title of the session was think globally and act locally, right? I think it's only one side of the equation. The other side is to think and listen locally, and act globally."
Beatriz Tumoine, Cemex: "As companies, we have a responsibility of making sure that we don't only look inside the company, but are actually influencing and lobbying to change some of the structural gaps."
Deepika Omprakash Yadav, IFC: "We need communication & transparency about what organisations or countries are doing so everybody else can learn from it. The more we talk, the more people learn. That is how we would be able to create that ripple effect & be agents of change."
