Q. How do you define success?
A. Professionally: I have been privileged to focus on something I care about deeply. The world will balance and know peace when men and women share power equally. I have worked for a couple of decades at building gender balance: liberating men and their institutional constructs from the damaging straightjacket of traditional masculinity and women from the minimising stereotypes that hold them back, and allow both genders to partner into becoming fully human. Only then will countries, companies and couples truly thrive. That would be what I call a success.
