 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.
