TED – Halla Tomasdottir: A feminine response to Iceland’s financial crash

The end of Halla’s speech got cut off – she says:

The final thought I want to leave with you is that I’m fed up with this tyranny of either/or choices in life –either it’s men or it’s women. We need to start embracing the beauty of balance. So let’s move away from thinking about business here and philanthropy there, and let’s start thinking about doing good business. That’s how we change the world. That’s the only sustainable future.

Thank you.

Diversity! It’s important – not only economically and politically, but it’s been proven again and again ecologically. Pretty amazing how all of these subjects are interconnected.
