“'The gay fight is an ongoing fight': Paul Zahra in search of $1 million to support LGBTI youth”

 Michael Koziol Sydney Morning Herald

Since leaving the top job at David Jones two years ago, Paul Zahra has had a lot more time to “give back”. Now he’s after something else: money.

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 ‘All blokes’ versus the ‘Gender Diverse’. Guess which boards perform better?

Womens Agenda, Angela Preistley 23 April 2015

“For many people, it’s simple common sense. Gender diverse boards offer more diverse ideas and better decision-making.

But for those who need the proof, new research from the Centre for Gender Economics and Innovation and Infinitas Asset Management offers some compelling data. Indeed, the 34 all-bloke boards on the ASX 200 have some work to do when it comes to financial performance.

The research launched today finds that companies with […]
