President & CEO ThoughtWorks
"I grew up in an environment where International Working Women's Day was observed and celebrated by everyone.
"One of the many things I love about ThoughtWorks is the fact that we actively abhor and reject discrimination and inequality and promote diversity in all its forms. And when I say diversity I'm talking about diversity of thought, of race, of culture, of age, diversity of skill, of experience, of education, and yes, of gender.
"The current glacial movement towards global gender parity makes it clear that the responsibility lies upon those of us in positions of influence, to lead the drive to do more in our own organisations and communities. With this in mind, I support the Pledge for Parity, on International Women's Day and, more importantly, on every day of the year."
