The Paradigm for Parity® coalition spotlights CEOs who are transforming their corporate culture to advance women of all races, cultures and backgrounds.

For International Women’s Day, the group featured Carl Hess, CEO of WTW, who shared an international perspective on closing the corporate gender gap. He noted that WTW “operates in over 140 countries and markets with clients ranging from individual consumers to the largest multinationals. Our talent needs to reflect this diversity, and that starts at the top.”

The CEO also highlighted that he has “seen more women leaders named in previously male-dominated areas of the business — a reflection of the conscious decision to break biases and do better. We’re not yet where we need to be and it’s important to be honest about that, but we’re on a good, and intentional, path.”
