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 […]

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.
