"Gender equity in jobs and pay is critical issue for business and society in general. If we want the best people then we must ensure we are educating and developing from the entire population."
"I want to be part of the group that is inspiring, driving change and providing opportunities for future generations. Gender equity makes sense; it makes business sense, it makes economic sense and it makes social sense."
"It’s proven and compelling – companies with gender equity outperform. At Alcoa, we are committed to making gender invisible for pay, performance and career advancement. Gender inequality should be a relic of the past."
"Achieving gender parity in Australian workplaces and governments is not just a nice to have, it is an economic imperative. Vast amounts of research tell us that having more female leaders will stimulate innovation and generate new ways of problem-solving."
I am proud to be one of the founding members of CEOs for Gender Equity. As a group of ‘influencers’ we are working to advance gender equality, creating positive and proactive change within organisations and the broader community.
