Feeling extremely honoured to receive the NSW Award for Excellence in Women’s Leadership 2020. Thank you. This award is a signal that women’s leadership is worth recognising but it also shows us that we have a long way to go, because we are still struggling to achieve gender parity in leadership positions.
For example, of the 25 chief executives appointed to lead Australia's top 200 companies in 2019, only two were women, with the percentage of women in the top role slipping to 6 per cent from 7 per cent a year earlier.
We still have a long way to go.
