So the best financial executives are white men who wear ties?

Obviously.  If this FULL-PAGE ad on page 10 of the Australian Financial Review’s Weekend Edition is anything to go by, that is.

Clearly, the AFR does not imagine that Australia’s next CFO of the year will be a woman. Or Asian. They somehow know that this person is going to be a white man!

Give me a break!  The majority of business, commerce and economics graduates are women.  And have been for more than two decades.

Perhaps you’d like to voice your opinion directly to the Editor of AFR, as I have. I’m sure they’d love to hear from you!  The email address is edletters@afr.com.au

Or if you’re the more compliant type, you might simply nominate one of the many female CFOs out there who are doing an awesome job.

Unless you’ve decided to ignore these awards altogether, that is, given the very narrow views of the judges implied in the ad.

Your thoughts?

Shout out to the magnificent men at Manly Cycles (in Manly, of course!) who helped me out today. No, I haven't returned to my youth and bought a bicycle (though I did have a lot of fun on that bike like that time I cycled half way to Adelaide and back during the school holidays because - well - just because. And that time I cycled to the next town over to collect a new pet rabbit, who looked a little horrified when she realised she was to be the cargo transported on the parcel rack).
No, after the bicycle being my mode of transport to and from school for most of my primary and high school years, I don't care if I never ride another bicycle in my life.
But... the horse needed some bike tubes for his tie up post. So the men at Manly Cycles sorted that out for me, with a smile, and wouldn't even let me buy them a coffee in thanks. Big thumbs up!
