What does gender equity mean to you? It should mean money. For example, if you work for or run an organisation, do you know what percentage of your leadership team needs to be female for you to boost your financial performance and improve employee productivity and engagement? It is not 100 per cent. Nor is it 75 per cent. Nor is it 50 per cent. According to research, the critical threshold is just 30 per cent. To understand what that means and to get an update on our progress towards closing the gender gap throughout society, we have turned to Dr Gemma Munro, CEO and founder of Inkling Women.

We discuss

  • Executive level gender gap
  • Gender gaps at home
  • Leadership styles
  • Boobs
  • Pay rate discrimination
  • Julia Gillard misogyny speech
  • Former Saatchi and Saatchi boss Kevin Roberts
  • Person, Partner, Parent
  • Singing with the Rolling Stones
  • Breaking negative self-talk
  • Leaning into discomfort
