“It’s everyone, both men and women, working together that are going to make this a better world and a better business environment.”

“We think there are a lot of very talented women already out there. The more that companies, CEOs, board directors, the chairs of nominating and  governance ask for those women and look for them, the better off we’ll be and we’ll have more balance on our boards.”
