Commented Anthony A. Rose, former Walmart and P&G executive; Chairman and CEO of House of Rose Professional and best-selling author of "Break the ceiling touch the sky: success secrets of the world's most inspirational women" (the book that inspired the summit) and "How to get, grow and succeed in your Dream Job"; "Since we announced Mission 2029 for a Better World in April 2020, exciting progress has been made - from 14 to 23 Female CEO's in the world's 500 largest Companies. We will continue our efforts to enable more women to the C-Suite through the deep expertise we have developed in the area of women in leadership as well as the ongoing expansion of Break the ceiling touch the sky® and our related services in Talent, Training and Transformation across the world."
Claudia Lorenzo, ASEAN & South Pacific Operating Unit President, The Coca-Cola Company shared, "Diversity, equity and inclusion are the heart of our company purpose, values and growth strategy. We're working to foster an inclusive culture and make Coca-Cola a great place to work, where people can belong, grow and thrive. We're pleased to be a sponsor of Break the ceiling touch the sky ®, an event which gives participants a tremendous opportunity to learn from others, share best practices, and chart their own individual courses for success."
Commented Julie Hamilton, Chief Commercial Officer, Diageo Plc, "The future is female. Research is indicating that women drive 70-80% of all consumer purchasing, through a combination of their buying power and influence. Given this reality, it is imperative we have more gender balanced leadership at the very top of organizations. At Diageo we believe that the fastest way to greater diversity at the top is to actively support greater opportunity for women to learn, grow and lead."
Julienne Loh, Executive Vice President, Enterprise Partnerships, Asia Pacific, Mastercard said, "Our world is full of brilliant possibilities. But they're not always open to everyone. This can hold us back at times. Mastercard believes diversity and inclusion are beyond bringing together people with different backgrounds. It's about creating meaningful connections, inspiring acceptance and cultivating cultures. We value diversity in both the characteristics and experiences that we can and cannot see about a person. That's when new ideas are sparked, better decisions are made and innovation happens. Mastercard is delighted to partner with the 2021 World Edition of Break the Ceiling Touch the Sky to bring this ethos to life."
Added Susanne Arfelt Rajamand, Managing Director at Fonterra South East Asia, "As a Co-operative, inclusion is foundational to Fonterra. It starts with a shared mindset that's right on point with today's collaborative economy. Equal opportunities for all. This is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a sustainable world. Glass ceilings can be dismantled, and barred doors can be unlocked, as long as someone in power is willing to turn the key. Achieving gender equality in the workplace requires significant male engagement in the effort. Women and men can give 100% at the workplace if their partners can give their 50% at home."
