Q: I was also hoping you might have some advice on how to return to work and put children in care?

Q: I was also hoping you might advise how best to approach what is a bad situation – how do you suggest parents proceed when it comes time to return to work and put their child/ren in care?  I realise there’s no magic bullet but some good advice would help balance the depressing reality!  Thanks, […]

70,000 mums want to work but can’t access childcare: how is this impacting your business?

News out today says that 70,000 Australian mums are locked out of the workforce solely because they cannot get affordable childcare.  Boy this makes me cranky. And it’s not just because I was up half the night showering and changing Master Almost-3 who’s had a recurring gastro for 3 weeks now.  This issue makes me […]

“Mother guilt” at work… why I loath this term and why it’s time to do away with it!

It could be just my interpretation, but I loath the term “mother guilt”.  It seems to me that labels like this do nothing to support the self-confidence of mothers – and it’s certainly not a draw card for career-minded women deciding whether and when to embark on parenting. My sentiment was evoked when, speaking at […]

Check this out, I'm in awe. My friend Ronni Kahn is at it again, disrupting the food supply chain, offering food security to the vulnerable. I've shared before about OzHarvest. When I first met Ronni ten years ago I knew she was special, but what she has achieved and continues to achieve truly blows my mind. She cares so much about the people that OzHarvest serves, and every person in her life, and gives her everything to make sure that no person needs to go hungry. The international expansion of OzHarvest is awesome, and this "take what you need" supermarket in Sydney is just brilliance. Repurposing and rehoming surplus food, keeping it out of landfill so that we all benefit and business overheads are lowered. Win. Win. Win. Love it! ... See MoreSee Less
