-"If the average American will spend $141 on Mother’s Day gifts, is it really so hard to imagine joining the ranks of almost all other countries by guaranteeing paid family leave under law? Moms will love flowers and chocolate on Mother’s Day, but they may be even happier to get a little support through paid leave when new babies arrive" (Janet Walsh).
- "Some companies publish their diversity data, while others share it with their leadership teams. As part of our commitments to the United Nations’ HeForShe campaign, we have for the first time published our own data on gender diversity—39% of our new hires and 11% of our senior leaders are women. Sharing these numbers is uncomfortable, as they are lower than we’d like. But there’s nothing like transparency and clear goals to concentrate minds and galvanize action." (Dominic Barton).
-"At the current pace of progress, we are more than 100 years away from gender equality in the C-suite. If NASA launched a person into space today, she could soar past Mars, travel all the way to Pluto and return to Earth 10 times before women occupy half of C-suite offices. Yes, we’re that far away." (Sheryl Sandberg).
