Let’s boycott Facebook this Valentines Day! Facebook shuns women on its Board

Do you heart Facebook?  Many women do it seems – with 58 per cent of its users being women.  That’s no small number when you consider the 800million users on Facebook. Apparently women spend more time than men making status and profile updates and commenting on others’ posts (I know that’s certainly true of my […]

Sure, M, as you might expect there are loads of articles around women and boards.  The three that I recommend […]

Progress of women on boards since 1917… what’s your take?

As a longtime fan of ForbesWoman, I was intrigued to read that B.C. Forbes, the founder of FORBES magazine, dedicated the first issue to women in business. “Forbes believes her achievements are wide,” he wrote, predicting that women “will soon sit on boards beside men.” That was in 1917. Almost 100 years on, have we […]

More women makes for better Corporate Social Responsibility – says new research by Catalyst and Harvard

I’ve long suspected that there’s something special about women leaders and the heart and soul they bring to an organisation.  It’s different to the stereotypical leadership model; rather that just dollars and cents, I’ve noticed that many women directors and executives bring a strong sense of values to a business.  Now new research from Catalyst […]

Assistance needed with Not-For-Profit survey – are you on the board or the payroll of a NFP?

Women are well represented within the workforce of nfp, charitable and community sector organisations. The community sector alone comprises around 85% women, which is a key factor in the equal pay case for community workers currently before Fair Work Australia. Yet we know very little about the gendered nature of senior management and their boards. […]

Are people your greatest asset? Then your executive and board must include people expertise, and that probably means more women

I have a question:  if people really are the greatest asset in any business (as many would say), why is it that HR professionals are paid less than those who manage the financial, property and operational assets of almost any business? Why do the so-called “soft skills” and “support roles” harbor less pay, promotional prospects […]

This is so up my alley. "In order to liberate women, we need to liberate men." (Anne Hathaway - UN Women Goodwill Ambassador).

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
