 2. Who are the women who have inspired you the most in your life?

Oprah Winfrey My mum Maya Angelou Every woman I have ever worked with!

3. Why do you think it’s important to increase the number of women in business, particularly in leadership roles?

It is critical. In Australia we have less than 30% of Board Executives women, meaning diversity is lacking. Further, women face gendered-ageism, lookism and other difficulties than men simply don’t. For my Doctorate, I am specialising in Female Leaders and specifically changing the taboo related to mid-aged women., without which, Diversity and Inclusion programs cannot succeed.

4. How would you describe your current thinking about diversity and inclusion?

I am an activist and always have been in over 30 years in HR, People Management and leadership. Diversity on all levels is critical to business success and Inclusion, it should not even be something we have to have ‘programs’ about. I am passionate on moving the agenda forward.

Jess Munday

Jess is a 32-year-old business owner and mum of two young kids, a 3-year-old boy Jagger and a 1-year-old girl Indiana. Starting a business wasn’t her intention. She graduated in 2012 with a degree in HR and Management and felt she had certainly found her calling, progressing through the ranks of a global fashion retailer, a job which she loved. It was during maternity leave that an opportunity presented itself. Initially a side project, it soon gained more traction than anyone could have predicted!

Friska Wirya

Friska helps large organisations, and the individuals within them more readily accept and thrive through change. She accelerates adoption and build proficiency at scale, having worked for some of the biggest names in mining, engineering and higher ed.

Sonia Gibson

Sonia loves to solve puzzles and naturally gravitate towards numbers and maths. As an entrepreneur in the accounting world, she has made a concerted move to elevate her leadership by tapping into a feminine approach. She helps clients see where conflict between the head and heart impacts decision making – going with one or the other in business means important elements are left behind.

Naomi is an international lawyer that assists companies to go global. She is also an author, presenter and advocate on issues impacting women in the workplace.
