Equal Pay Day: Who really cares whether men and women are paid the same, anyway?

I’m supposed to be at an Equal Pay Day event right now… but I was so cranky that women still earn 17% less than men in equivalent roles that I decided to stay home.  Instead of hearing more women speak about how unjust the gap is, and decree another call to action for the female […]

Why the Government is wrong to reduce the childcare rebate – and why it will mean fewer women in senior roles

I’m deeply concerned about by the government’s announcement that the childcare rebate is to be reduced (yes – you read right: reduced!).  As you’ll be aware, I recently co-founded the Make Care Fair lobby aimed at increasing childcare support and flexibility for Australian families… and yet the government has just announced plans to cut the […]

The beginning of the end of flexibility and working from home?

Since the introduction of the Fair Work Act and the right to request flexibility, we’ve seen a positive lift in the number of employers taking flexible work options seriously.  So much so that it seemed like a whole new era had been ushered… until this multi-million dollar claim by a Telstra worker has placed a serious question mark […]

Would you recognise unconscious bias if you saw it in your workplace? 10 signs to watch out for!

I haven’t been here in a while as the writing has been on hold. But I was reminded today that there are things in our life that light us up. That might take us out of our comfort zone but, once you sit with it, bring you both joy and a sense of “I can do this” achievement. These moments are such a gift. So I’m curious, what’s your special thing that lights you up?

Despite (or in spit of) my professional career, these moments for me normally involve my horses. I’ll never be an equestrian Olympian, but I take great pleasure in all the lessons my horses teach me. They remind me that it’s a team effort, we’re in it together, and that if I’m prepared to give a little bit more, they will too. That’s true whether we’re on the ground taking care of their feet, or grooming, or when I’m atop riding as one. Two hearts one team.
It’s hard to describe the adrenaline and joy they bring to my life. But I’d love to know, what lights you up??
