If women are not willing to be bold, nothing will change. Given the glacial pace of change for women in the workplace, including politics, at the current rate of change it will be over 100 years before we have gender equality in leadership roles, and it is projected that it will be over 300 years before we have pay equity! A working woman will earn $1 Million less than her male peers, and will retire with over 50% less in superannuation than men. Women need to be bold, fearless, and above all relinquish the desire to be all things to all people, in order to change things for themselves and other women!

As a society, Australia has worked towards offering equal opportunity to women in the workplace and the statistics appear to reflect significant progress. However, its advancement towards eradicating gender disparity maintains a glacial pace.

Lets look at the stats: http://ow.ly/38Fe30cxuQ4

Leadership consultant, Avril Henry welcomes the adoption of anonymous recruiting. She trialled the idea 21 years ago when she was working at Westpac.

At the time, Henry was recruiting in Sydney for six call centre team leader roles and was trying to find a way to stop women from being excluded from the roles.

“I’d only been working in diversity for about 18 months. I didn't even know of the concept of unconscious bias,” she says.

"One of the benefits of being a mature well-educated woman is that you're not afraid of expletives. And you have no fear to put a fool in his place. That's the power of language and experience. You can learn a lot from Shakespeare" - Judi Dench

Various studies have found female friendships can protect you from a wide range of serious illnesses, add years to your life, help you bounce back from trauma, and give you a leg up in your career.

And yet, strong female friendships fall further down the hierarchy of outward markers of life success than other factors. We as women are expected to want a husband, children and a great career, but your elderly aunt doesn’t ask about the health of your female friendships over Christmas dinner. http://ow.ly/jCGu30cxuQ2

Good leaders are able to motivate staff to not only give their best; they become the organisation’s best “marketing tool”. Great leaders inspire ordinary people to do extraordinary things by believing in them, and trusting them. - Avril Henry http://ow.ly/19ZL30cxuPY

The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army or in an office.” - Dwight D Eisenhower

Many organisations believe that they have moved from diversity to inclusion. If only that were true in practice! We may be a diverse society, but there is very little diversity and inclusion in senior leadership in private sector organisations, governments, religious institutions and many not-for-profit organisations. Yet the most common words used to describe inclusion are: addition, admittance, incorporation, involvement, embodiment, embracing, being included, belonging, acceptance, attachment and enlargement.

True inclusion is about respect.
