Remember Mad Men, the popular TV drama show, set in the backdrop of a New York-based ad agency in the early 1960s? The series gives you a clear picture of the '60s—a decade of cultural and societal changes, with women joining the workforce in droves. Their one-point agenda: to dismantle workplace inequality.

So why is it so important to include women in the workforce? Inclusivity fuels diversity of thought, and brings experience and perspective, thus driving an organisation's success. In today's disrupted times of ever-changing consumer expectations, the key to success lies in breakthrough thinking which can only come from a multifaceted and diverse talent mix.
