Egon Zehnder Accelerates Opportunities for Female Leaders with 2018 Leaders & Daughters Global Event Series

World’s leadership advisory firm convenes top executives and next generation female leaders to “Mind the Gap; “To My Daughter” letters campaign inspires people to share their stories

Zurich, Switzerland & London, United Kingdom & New York, United States

Egon Zehnder, the world’s leadership advisory firm, announced its fourth annual global event series “Leaders & Daughters: Mind the Gap.” This inspiring 40-city program showcases Egon Zehnder’s commitment to diversity while encouraging and accelerating opportunities for female leaders of the future.


Egon Zehnder has a long standing commitment to diversity and is dedicated to ending the glass ceiling effect that exists as women rise in seniority but do not reach the C-Suite. For its 2018 theme, Egon Zehnder and event participants will explore how best to “Mind the Gap,” seeking greater understanding of the limitations women face in reaching senior roles and the conditions that most impact their ambitions. By bringing together today’s most renowned leaders and their daughters, mentees or the women they sponsor, the events foster a dialogue and frame actionable solutions to help women achieve their highest potential.


“Leaders & Daughters continues be a global catalyst for positive change to support professional women at all stages of their careers,” stated Rajeev Vasudeva, Chief Executive Officer of Egon Zehnder.The multiple viewpoints gathered across the globe form a rich perspective to inform how we can pragmatically improve the opportunities and lessen the obstacles for women to succeed,” he noted. “Without the commitment of the world’s top leaders to serve as role models in this journey we won’t accelerate the pace of change.
