Balance in Business Event Series: Who leads? Who ‘still’ cares?

November 25, 2020
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Part 1: The CEO’s perspective

Join us for the first of a three part event series brought to you by the Balance in Business Initiative.


We invite you to help us shape the debate around one of the more pressing issues of our time: gender balance. Making gender balance a reality is on every organisation’s agenda and has become mission critical for leaders. It is not only an essential management team requirement, and a cornerstone of driving value for the business, but also a global challenge set by the UN SDG #5.


Is ‘Building Back Balanced‘ not fundamental to ‘Building Back Better’? We think it is. With working lives changing and evolving more rapidly than we can imagine, now more than ever, we need to take every opportunity to accelerate balance in business. Our distinguished CEO panel will bring you hard facts, share their practical experience, and take your questions to bring about concrete solutions and galvanise you to take action. They will share their perspective on the role of the leader in driving gender balance together with business results, candidly describing successful as well as poorer attempts at making real change.


Avivah Wittenberg-Cox, CEO 20-First, will set the scene on how to better engage men to develop high performance diverse organisations; and moderate the discussion with:


Tiger Tyagarajan – Chief Executive Officer, Genpact
Charlie Nunn – GMD, Chief Executive, Wealth and Personal Banking, HSBC
Ronan Dunne – Executive Vice President and Group CEO, Verizon Consumer


This is an open event for all INSEAD alumni and their guests, and alumni from other business schools. Our goal is to inspire current and future leaders to engage and offer their perspectives, share experiences, and generate practical insights and solutions to gender balancing issues. This event is organised by the ‘Balance in BusinessInitiative with the support of our invaluable sponsors: Genpact, our Event Founding Partner, and 20-First, our Knowledge Partner.
