We collaborate with some of the most influential business leaders to set a new standard for leadership together. 


Our future needs leaders that showcase clarity, empathy and empowerment.

Google supports this leadership movement because we believe the future of leadership has to be more diverse.

We at UniCredit want to be involved as this movement will support the wider business environment and society as a whole.
