Post career considerations: why it’s so important to have fulfilling and financially rewarding careers

Not only do women earn 16-18% less then men working similar jobs, Australian women are also have much lower superannuation pay outs then men as many women move in and out of work to have children. What action is being taken at a government and corporate level to fix this issue? The Australian superannuation is […]

Retirement gender pay gap – why it affects more women than just those with kids and why you need to consider it when making career decisions

I posted a blog a while back about post-career considerations and why it’s important that we’re active in addressing the pay gap that women will get in retirement, primarily because they take time off paid work to have kids. But with an increasingly aging population, women are usually the first ones to step up to […]

Penelope Trunk, HR blogger says there is NO PAY GAP between men and women, and that this is not a controversial statement. It is, and its also factually wrong…

“…the reason top-tier female MBAs make less then the men is because of the choice they make, not because of any gender bias”. This is not the only reason why male and female workers do not achieve equal pay and even if it was, women should not be penalized for having children, and should not […]

Sydneysiders – Invitation to attend “Unhappy hour” for Equal Pay Day on September 4th – Women are paid 18 percent less an hour so you’ll get 18 percent off your food and drink!

The pay gap between men and women workers isn’t getting better, but women are getting more active and better coordinated to tackle this issue head on. Pay disparity is one of the issues, like many in employing women that has many causes but one of them is definitely the lack of scrutiny applied to the […]

Even without kids, women still don’t achieve pay parity – and we’re talking $15,000 p.a. less.

This Catalyzing blog had me cheering along as Ilene challenged men to stop fearing equality and criticized some media outlets for depicting women as mere risk-averse cleaner-uppers. “Is cleaning up a leadership trait?” asked Ilene. “I don’t think so.” Arguing that the main issue to pay equity and equal gender representation is having children is like arguing that a […]

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.
