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 […]

This week I spent a morning with Catriona Noble, CEO of McDonalds Australia, gathering insights for my new “how to” book for leaders wishing to attract, develop and retain more women in their business.  You might be surprised to hear that the “Golden Arches” employ a workforce of 85,000 individuals here; across 820 restaurants with annual […]

This is so up my alley. "In order to liberate women, we need to liberate men." (Anne Hathaway - UN Women Goodwill Ambassador).

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
