Stop Changing Women – Change Organisations Instead

Stop Changing Women – Change Organisations Instead

Men seem to dominate decision-making positions. Even in schools or hospitals, where 80% of staff are women, men dominate senior management positions.

However, when one looks at the figures, it’s easy to see that’s not the […]

Women paying for a lack of child maintenance as Australian Family Services Legislation fails them

If you have ever had to arrange child maintenance for your children after a separation or divorce you will have first hand experience of our difficult it is and how flawed the Australian Family Services Legislation actually is.  It assumes that the women will be the primary caregiver, which is not a problem because this is usually true.  The problem exists when men are able to walk […]

GGEC19 in planning for mid 2019

Planning for GGEC19 has began and we hope will focus on real conversations about the impact of gendered roles, and specifically addressing conversations with, and about men.  We need to give men a much greater voice in terms of the gender conversation as many of them feel displaced and isolated with some of the consequences of this being violence, depression and demotivation in the workplace.

We also need to help women participate in the hard discussions […]

The former chief executive is on the hunt for $1 million to double the size of the Pinnacle Foundation, which awards scholarships and assigns mentors to disadvantaged gay and lesbian youth.

The six-year-old charity is one of the quiet achievers in a philanthropic space that is yet […]

Mentoring,
Leadership training, and

As part of our development of the field of Gender Economics we sent an interviewer out into the street in Perth, Western Australia to ask people a couple of questions about Gender and Gender Economics.  The results are not at all surprising because we did expect that those interviewed would not know what Gender Economics is, but some of the answers are interesting in terms of what people think gender is and what they […]

Open Innovation – Why More Companies are Embracing it

WHY MORE COMPANIES ARE EMBRACING OPEN INNOVATION

PUTTING YOUR NEEDS OUT IN THE OPEN IS SOMETIMES BETTER THAN TRYING TO INNOVATE IN-HOUSE OR IN SECRET.

BY DENYS RESNICK FASTCOMPANY

Open innovation (or “OI”) didn’t used to be the way the most successful companies did business. It’s the process of searching outside a company’s walls—and even its own industry—for technology and solutions to keep it at the cutting edge. For obvious reasons, then, many businesses still find OI risky, since […]
