  • Women in Senior MANAGEMENT www.FashionMentorOnline.com
  • To stop the imbalance in numbers between men and women taking senior roles, it is necessary to either legislate or educate, writes FabeKeily, CEO of What Working Women Want.www.FashionMentorOnline.com
  • The lack of females in senior management positions in Australia remains a hotly debated topic. Should we legislate to ensure more women are given the opportunity to take on senior management roles, or is it a matter of educating women to overcome the personal, cultural and organisational barriers that exist?www.FashionMentorOnline.com
  • The real questions seem to be: Are women really suited for these high pressure, top jobs that involve long hours and little peace? And do women really want to sacrifice their family for higher paying jobs that put constant strain on their health and relationships?www.FashionMentorOnline.com
  • Recently, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) announced changes to their Corporate Governance Principles that require publicly listed companies to report the numbers of women in their senior decision making roles. This included what initiatives companies were taking to provide women the opportunity to progress in management, should they wish to. Unfortunately, the statistics show that by the end of 2010 there has been little change. Compounding that fact was the issue surrounding equal pay rights between men and women.www.FashionMentorOnline.com
  • While there is a definite imbalance between the working rights of men and women (whether in senior positions or not), perhaps the real power of women have is in the relationships they build with their male counterparts.www.FashionMentorOnline.com
  • www.FashionMentorOnline.comThere are, of course, men and women who believe they can do better than each other, yet business and personal growth is achieved best through teamwork and respect.Real power is when men and women work together to achieve outstanding results. Not one better than the other, but working together embracing their unique skills and talents.
  • Having travelled Australia and interacted with thousands of working women across the country, and hearing from many women in management, my opinion is that empowerment is not about legislation but rather about education. In my experience, it’s not that women aren’t being given the opportunity to apply for senior roles, but that they lack the confidence.www.FashionMentorOnline.com
  • A perfect example of this is when a more senior role with promotional opportunity becomes available: typically a man will look at the 10 criteria necessary to achieve the job and if he can tick off three of those items he’ll apply, while a women will look at the opportunity and unless she can tick off all ten, she won’t even try.www.FashionMentorOnline.com
  • So what can be done differently to attract women into senior roles or make them feel comfortable about working equally with peers?There are five key issues which I have branded SWIM (Smart Women in Management). These issues are…………..www.FashionMentorOnline.com
  • five key issues Identifying and understanding gender differencesConfidence and assertiveness: opportunities and obstacles Understanding the importance of resilience in management  Mastering your emotions: overcoming self-sabotaging thoughts  Understanding the significance of work/life balancewww.FashionMentorOnline.com
  • It’s time for women with skills in senior management to sink or swim. It is clear that I believe that education is the best way to achieve this. When it comes right down to it, I suppose some people may believe we should legislate, although it really does make sense to educate. TGRwww.FashionMentorOnline.com
