Help wanted: Gender balanced investors to quiz Directors on the gender agenda

Do you invest in shares? Would you use your vote to demand that companies you invest in act now to capitalize on the opportunity women present? If so, I want to hear from you. (And if not, you should and you can!) As a shareholder, I attended the Fairfax Media annual general meeting in Sydney […]

Women become more visible in Cabinet reshuffle… but why did it take so long?

Is it just me, or is anyone else wondering “where were all these women a week ago??”  Amazing isn’t it what you can find sometimes, when you put your mind to it and really go looking? Just goes to show that, sometimes, all it takes is a leader willing to back those who have talent […]

New book busts myths about women in business, and introducing (drumroll please!…….) our very first Friday freebie giveaway!

Wallowing this week in the colds and flu that descended on our little household, it’s been hard to stop thinking about Sheryl Sandberg and her family. The tragic and sudden death of Sheryl’s husband, Dave, last weekend, is unbelievable. I had the privilege and great joy to spend a morning with Sheryl at BlogHer a […]

The Lucky Country becoming the Land of Whingers, as complaints roll in about ANZAC Day services

This makes my blood boil. In my local paper this week was a page full of complaints from participants at our local dawn service last Saturday. I read similar reports on a number of regional papers I follow on line. What is going on in this country????? Surely we’re better than this? So there weren’t […]

Women, choices and freedom: we will not do deals with terrorists

In my high school years when most contemporaries were studying English, I studied French. So began my life as a Francophile and (several visits to the continent later) the love affair has never faltered. Friendships came easily with the French I met there, and those who later gravitated to me here on Australian soil. And […]

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
