International Women’s Day – Reflection

Today is International Women’s Day. I know many great women; some of them are in business, some in academia, some in politics, some are stay at home mums and most are a beautiful combination of all these things.

My post today is not to lament the fact that there are few women in management positions in the world (according to Deloitte only 4% of CEOs are women) or fewer serving on corporate boards of companies (in Italy, only 6 percent of board members are women; in Spain and Belgium, 11 percent; in Germany, 16 percent; in France, 22 percent) but rather a celebration of women and all that we can accomplish as professionals and leaders in our countries and communities and as wives, mothers, aunts, sisters, daughters and friends.
