Did you see us on prime time?! Linkage featured on CBS’ 60 Minutes

By Mark Hannum on April 17, 2018

I’m really thrilled at how far Linkage has come. I have to admit that our appearance on 60 Minutes on Sunday night was unequivocally a high point for me during my 20+ years here.

For those of you who haven’t seen it, take a few minutes to watch the clip now. My colleague Jill Ihsanullah and I were included in a segment about addressing the gender pay gap in today’s workforce—how topics like unconscious bias can help drive the positive change that we want to see and achieve gender parity.

The opportunity to showcase sound bites from our experiential workshop on a national TV show speaks to the timely, important work that we are doing to change lives—and to help leaders everywhere become leaders worth following.

Jill’s recent insight piece is a great reminder of the incredible opportunity that we have each day as leaders to address this important topic head-on and ultimately create a more inclusive culture where everyone, regardless of their race, experience, background or age brings their very best self to work.

So, at the end of the day, this wasn’t just a minute on TV, it was Linkage at its best. I’m proud to have been a part of it and I look forward to continuing to be a part of this important movement alongside extraordinary organizations like Paradigm for Parity, and many others around the world committed to achieving gender parity. Together we can, and will, make a difference.

Here are a few of our favorite moments from the 60 Minutes video shoot at NFP.
