This year has seen the impressive rise of strong, inspiring women at the forefront of global politics. Hillary Clinton stands an excellent chance to be elected as the first female President of the United States. Britain has just elected its second female Prime Minster in Theresa May, while German Chancellor Angela Merkel's principled humanitarian position on the refugee crisis has given Europe much needed leadership. It is obvious why some people say this is the 'Year of the Woman'.

Just as glass ceilings can inhibit a company's growth, more dangerous is what I'd like to refer to as "foggy windshields" -- the blurred vision that results from not having diverse points of view in the C-suite and boardroom amid a rapidly evolving consumer landscape.

Yet for me, the most exciting, kick-off news was this: The White House made visible its "Equal Pay Pledge".
