Women in manufacturing less likely to receive promotions or workplace training than male peers

Almost 3 out of 4 women working in the manufacturing industry have never been promoted or given a higher paying role, while more than 60 per cent of female workers had never been offered any workplace training, according to a survey report released this week by AMWU titled Breaking the Perspex Ceiling. The survey found that women, who […]

Sharp Appoints First-Ever Female Executive Officer

Now this is precisely what I was referring to in my last post where I called for Australia’s mining and energy stocks to look to women in times of crisis…  Out of the current earthquake-cum-tsunami-cum-nuclear crisis in Japan is news this week from Tokyo that Sharp Corp has appointed the first female executive officer in the company’s […]

Glass ceiling or no glass ceiling… what’s your take?

What’s your take… do you think the glass ceiling is still there, never exisisted or is dead and buried? Do you think we’ve made enough progress to put the Glass Ceiling behind us?  Is it time we binned the term and came up with something that better reflects the current reality?  Do you have a […]

Are we equals? “Until the answer is yes, we must never stop asking”

In last week’s celebration of the centenary of International Women’s Day, I heard a lot of comments from men and women about why we even need a day to reflect on the contribution that women make to our community, workplaces and economies.  I listened patiently to the satirical talkback on ABC radio mocking the call […]

Happy International Women’s Day and why well behaved women rarely make history!

Last Friday at the UN Breakfast celebrating 100 years of International Women’s Day I sat next to Rachel who keeps this pin inside her handbag and it stuck in my mind as I listened to the guest speaker Justice Unity Dow, and again last night as I watched a special screening of Made in Dagenham: Whether it […]

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.
