This very morning, this was a conversation I had with my ceo husband (of a rapidly growing wa manufacturing and engineering company). My question was how many females he had in management (he paused - non) How many female engineers of his 17+ strong team he had ( he spluttered an inexcusable reply that warranted keeping them in his company) then remembering an article I read about the lack of female disabled CEOs or in upper level management?? The silence was indeed deafening. I was happy to assist his thinking that although his company is culturally diverse, it was still lacking a pivotal moment in a business sense. I wasn't asking for him to make a token gesture, but shift the balance of power in this male environment again and lead in this area so it no longer remains precarious for women negotiating a career/pathway. I've always said , "Women need to make the same sacrifices men make for their careers". Keep thinking outside the rules of employing and working alongside women.

Pearl we in the African community are proud of you, as we have watched what you do so boldly and only wished we had the courage to participate. Thank you for your leadership in the community, a sort of lighthouse- sometimes you're standing So close to it, that you actually don't see its light or purpose. Standing back We seen you and your other african peers and the glow of your contributions (if not successes). Thanks to Australia's largeness and its platform for such essential community work.
