While at Harvard in 2004, she wrote the first paper for the World Economic Forum on the business case for corporations to advance women and diverse talent. Her paper in 2004 was presented at Davos to 100 CEOs and spurred the start of WEF highly regarded Gender Programme to track how nations fare in capturing the talent of half their population. Later, McKinsey, Credit Suisse, UBS and other major corporations followed suit to develop research and statistics to show that gender balanced and diverse teams lead to better financial performance and reduced groupthink.
