Our careers are lengthening; transforming from sprints into marathons, and we need to think strategically about how we position ourselves to thrive in this new world. Avivah explores the most crucial career choice that we each make – our life partners. Paradoxically, this is also often the team that we spend the least time on. Avivah suggests that we should bring leadership skills home, and that we should think more consciously about the dual career model that we each wish to adopt. Avivah is CEO of 20-first, a leading international gender-balance consultancy. 20-first works with top management at some of the world’s best-known companies to identify the business opportunities of gender balance and how to achieve them. She has written a number of best-sellers in the field, including Seven Steps to Leading a Gender Balanced Business, published by Harvard Business Review.
