Gender stereotypes are much more prevalent then many employers would like to think – I could write a gender stereotype War and Peace of the stories I’ve heard from both the women who are discriminated against (or suspect they are) and the employers who have been shocked to realize what was going on int their […]

Guest blog by Morningstar Managing Editor, Julia Newbould – We’re not changing attitudes just behaviour

“Don’t set out to change attitudes, set out to change behaviour,” Catherine Fox told a group of Finsia lunch attendees in Sydney last week. Changing attitudes is a hard slog and could take generations but changing behaviour is something manageable and is still possible to achieve in my working life. There were a lot of […]

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
