“This is not a battle of the sexes — it’s the battle for Australia’s future prosperity.”

28 October 2013


EY’s fifth instalment in its Women in Leadership series, “In his own words – the male perspective on gender diversity”, is based on interviews with nine male leaders in the public and private sectors:

David Gonski AC

Dr Simon Longstaff AO

General David Hurley AC DSC

Ian Narev

Alan Joyce

Dr Martin Parkinson PSM

Brian Schwartz

David Thodey

Brian Hartzer

The report asked each of them:

• Why is gender equity important to Australian organisations?

• Why aren’t our current initiatives working?

• What should companies and governments do differently?

Their surprising answers will ignite debate and hopefully focus energies where they are most needed toward making the changes needed to achieve gender diversity and improve Australia’s productivity and chances for prosperity.
