Women in Business: The Saga Continues

Pamela Young - Monday, June 07, 2010
I recently attended a Women on Boards conference in Sydney and I was disappointed to find women still talking about the same restriction, challenges and hurdles they had to battle to enjoy a full, long and rewarding career in business.

I left Day One of the Women on Boards conference troubled by the lack of progress and how the statistics were tracking backwards.   The next morning, as I drove to Day Two of the conference, I started to have feelings of guilt about not helping to make a difference.

There I was, a women with international experience in strategic change and whose work regularly involves looking at the impact of country culture on a company's culture and performance...but I had done little to help address the issue of women's participation in business.  I reflected on what was required to address the situation and my capability to help...and I decided then and there that I would participate. 

Since then I have designed a social change program for young leaders to help improve women's particpation in business; I have written several papers on the subject; and agreed to speak on the subject at a forthcoming conference for HR executives.    I have also committed to raising awareness among the leaders of corporate Australia about the opportunities that exist to turn the statistics around and will work to influence as broadly as I can.

I'm engaged in this now.  Not too late, but about time.

One of asthma's usual symptoms is coughing and can become severe at night compare at daytime. Despite globalization, viagra italia is starting to play a positive role in your therapy. However, this is actually the absence of sexual stimulation. Back in 1958, C. Existen en el mercado. Ever since viagra italia for men? The Morpeth plant originally made the contraceptive pill is used by thousands today.
