Do women really need a leg-up to play with the business boys or are we doing just fine on our own? The glass ceiling, boys club and so-called reverse discrimination… The quota debate is a big one – a veritable can of worms in fact – and we plan to rip it right open and take a long hard look at what’s inside at the annual AIM Women in Management Great Debate.
Hear the teams battle it out over a few laughs, fine wines and great food in Sydney on Friday 3rd June and Canberra on Friday 1st July 2011. With a fabulous line up of speakers including Ita Buttrose, Jean Kittson and Fiona O’Loughlin, all kept in check by our marvellous MC Julie McCrossin, tickets for this fun-filled, provocative and topical event are selling fast.
Tell us what you think. If we’re ‘placed’ at the top via mandatory quotas, what does this say about merit – are we only good for making up the numbers? Follow us on Twitter and have your say #forquotas or #againstquotas
PS. This is a sponsored post for AIM Women in Management and I’m delighted to support the 2011 Great Debate. I’ll be there at the event and I’d like to take on of my readers with me to both the Sydney and Canberra events.
