As published on the Femeconomy website.
Women represent about 18% of quoted media sources when it comes to business. So, the stories of Australian female leaders go largely untold. Femeconomy’s female leader interviews with our community are a way to remedy this imbalance for the women achieving outstanding results in business.
Stories of female leaders, who typically pursue non-traditional, non-linear career paths are fascinating. We want to know in their words how they’ve reached the pinnacles of leadership. These trailblazing female leaders’ stories, wisdom and friendship have left an indelible imprint on us, as they will on you. Enjoy!
