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 […]

Do you have a good article on how gender diverse boards are more successful (or their companies?) I need some empirical evidence about this…

Hi Jen, do you have a good article on how gender diverse boards are more successful (or their companies?) I’d love to share some empirical evidence about this with a client of my firm.  M. 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 […]

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.
