Wealth advice for women: delaying having children will boost your pay by 9 per cent per year

The link between parenting and pay has been demonstrated in a study that shows postponing motherhood leads to an increase in women’s earnings of 9% per year of delay, according to Amalia R. Miller of the University of Virginia. As you might expect, the wage advantage was largest for college-educated women who have the potential […]

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 […]

Have your say on Equal Pay for Women – new survey requires your input

re you really being paid what your worth?  Or as much as he’s being paid in your equivalent role?  Does it really matter anyway?  It’s a fact that women working full-time, year-round in Australia are paid only about 83 cents for every dollar earned by men – and that’s an improvement over last year!  More […]

Why are women are still leaving top organisations and jobs in their droves… and why don’t business leaders stop it from happening?

Back in 2005, just a couple of years after completing my MBA, my classmate Bianca sent a copy of Off-Ramps and On-Ramps (a Harvard Business Review article by Sylvia Ann Hewlett and Carolyn Buck Luce) to all the women in our cohort.  The article which highlights the large numbers of highly qualified women dropping out of mainstream careers was […]

Is being a woman – and the social pressures that come with being of the fairer sex – the reason why women need more help with financial planning?

Panty hose.  Make up.  Hair cuts and colours.  And an ever changing wardrobe.  Being a woman is expensive – don’t we know it.  And made all the more so by the increasing gender pay gap in Australia.  This article not only points out what we’ve long known about the costs of being a woman, but […]

Australians are still confused about the meaning of gender pay equity, survey by Diversity Council of Australia finds

A new study conducted for Diversity Council Australia (DCA) and the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace agency (EOWA) shows that 64 per cent of Australians wrongly think that pay equity means equal pay for men and women who are doing the same job.   Just 14 per cent of people agreed with the correct […]

What are the lessons you’re teaching your kids? We took the opportunity of a holiday long weekend to visit my mum interstate as the timing of the trip coincided with my son’s favourite AFL team battling it out against my mum’s beloved team. Perhaps only those of you with the love for AFL will appreciate why we’d plan a long distance trip around a game of footy, but suffice to say it was a passion project! With every ounce of anticipation, the game was a tough, tight duel and could easily have gone either way. Yet when the final siren sounded, it wasn’t our team that was smiling. It sure is tough for a 10 year old boy to sit within a crowd 41,000+ people all cheering for the opposite side. It was tough for him to see the exhaustion and disappointment on the faces of the players he adores. And yet, it’s so important for him to learn that his team won’t always win. There’s so many lessons in that, but the one I chose to instil is that you won’t always back the team that wins but you’ll always back the team that you love. That’s why I asked him to wear his team colours home the next day, and show his support even when the chips are down. That’s the kind of commitment I want my son to learn and the kind of team player I want him to be. PS. #gotheGiants @GWSGiants #neversurrender ... See MoreSee Less

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??

And so, maybe time does change some things. Or women do.
