Part 1: WHY?
Why Care? Do we care about balance? Why or why not? How much? How urgently? Can we sell our ‘why?’ to both the believers and the sceptics?
Most Executive Teams consider nationality and gender balance a priority. They haven’t yet thought much about age. Get balance onto the strategic agenda, compellingly.

A politically incorrect conversation to ensure that leaders become both convinced and convincing. Even comfortable on why and how to build balance – across nationalities, genders and/or generations. No mean feat in a single day.
“Don’t let anyone else (e.g. HR, Diversity, or your women’s network head) present the ‘business case’ for balance to a gently acquiescing but unaccountable leadership team. It is impossible to convince from the outside in. Years of out-groups arguing to in-groups why there should be more of them should have proven this. If you want buy-in, this team needs to debate the issues amongst themselves.”
