The Why, the What and the How
Fish in the Boardroom is a bi-weekly podcast discussing Diversity in Swiss Leadership. In 20-30 Minute interviews with leaders throughout Switzerland discuss what can be done on an individual as well as on an organisational level to increase diversity in Leadership positions.
Listen here on my website:
I rarely speak about my work or what drives me, mainly because I feel there are more important people out there, but this time around I was convinced to talk to #fishintheboardroom about #integrity, #change, #compassion
I really enjoyed the conversation

#28 Simona, Why do you Challenge the Notion of Availability equaling Results?
In the last episode of the season, I talk with Simona Scarpaleggia, an international business leader, author, board member and former global CEO.
We delve into the topic of how to create sustainable change in the workplace, why she thinks part-time shouldn’t be a career killer, and whether the DEI policies she advocates for are harder to implement in smaller companies.
#27 Gilles, what does a committed father need?
Research has proven without a doubt that having an engaged, nurturing father can provide huge benefits for children’s physical, social and psychological well-being. But the cultural frameworks and systemic support for men to be able to fully embrace this role is largely missing in Switzerland today.
#26 Anne, is ensuring diversity in ads the key to a double bottom line?
Ads that portray women in a professional setting receive significantly less funding than those that portray them in traditional gender roles, found a 2022 research by CreativeX. Data like this show that while the portrayal of women on screen has changed over the last decades, the media and advertising industry still has a long way to go in terms of diversity and representation.
For anyone interested in practices relating to Diversity and Inclusion in Switzerland – and let’s be honest, huge progress needs to be made here – this podcast offers a wealth of insights in a series of short,, information-rich interviews with leading practitioners in the filed. A much-needed addition to the Swiss podcast landscape.
