Who’s looking after the kids?

Who’s looking after the kids?

In executive boardrooms across Australia there are very few women sitting at the head of the table in the top positions, but today marks an important day for women around Australia. It’s an inspiring day that proves it’s possible to lead from any chair.

On 24 June 2010 Julia Gillard became our nation’s first Deputy Prime Minister and has now become the first Aussie female to snap up the top job as Prime Minister.  Julia joins other leading Australian women, like our first female Governer-General Quentin Bryce, and the long list of successful women who have claimed the nation’s top leader positions.

I found this story about why top jobs elude women, I have a close relation to this story as a mother of two I have struggled to sustain a solid career path.  I’m now at the age of 31 and I’m studying part-time whilst working full-time to give myself the opportunity to achieve my career goal. I think today marks a very important milestone for all women across Australia.

Yours in design,
