Partnering to lift women in leadership roles

Partnering to lift women in leadership roles

We are supporting advancement of more women to leadership positions in business, government and the not-for-profit sectors through a new partnership – with Chief Executive Women - to enable further research on inhibitors to the promotion of women.

CEO Mike Smith recently led round table discussions with some of our senior women to gain a deeper understanding of the conditions and culture they believe most enable women to succeed in business.

“One of the consistent themes is the importance of supportive managers, with strong values and respect for different work styles and perspectives. Recruiting, developing and rewarding values-led leaders - male or female - is a critical success factor in getting more women into management. If we are serious about making real progress, we must also continue to challenge those who still hold that flexible work practices and a performance culture can’t mix,” said Mike.
