Sheryl Sandberg: So what would the world look like? What would the world look like if those three reasons went away? If all of you stood up? If we got to equality. If we had 50% of our companies and institutions run by women and 50% of our homes run by men. I can't claim it'll be utopia with flowers and guitar playing, even though it might be actually. But I do think we know a lot. We know our companies would be more productive.
Warren Buffett has famously and graciously said that he was so successful partially because he was only competing with half the population. When it comes to filling our leadership ranks we are basically sourcing from half the population and if we sourced from the whole population, we're going to do better. Our institutions, our companies, we're going to do better.

And so this is not just about the women that get into the corner office, this is about the women that work in any company they work in, that work throughout our society.There may be small errors in this transcript.
