Marketing Blog tag: 'Women in business' - Marketing Eye

Catalyst, a non-profit organisation providing research services into women in the workforce recently reported that females made up only 16.3% of CEO positions and 34.1% of senior management positions in 2016.

Being a young woman with high hopes in business and seeing these kinds of statistics is both disheartening and motivating. On one hand, it pushes you to think “I can do this, I can really make a difference”, then some days you see the number of male figureheads of a company or even the country, shake your head and wonder if it’s worth it (pro tip: it is).

My heart is in rural Australia. I live in the big city, but I don't feel like it is home. It is just a place where I sleep sometimes, while I am on my journey growing my business and living life.

A few years back I donated my time, money and resources to an outback town to encourage entrepreneurship. Out of that business incubator, there are a number of businesses that are still developing and will in the years to come, grow into businesses that employ people, create opportunities and sell to the world. I'm very proud to have met the incredible people who put up their hands and were part of this movement where they decided to make a stance against long-term unemployment and the drawn out drought that is still affecting their livelihoods.

Last night I was reminded of a man who took his cattle to the ship to be loaded, only to be told that they would die should they land in Asia as they were too skinny. The stevedore suggested that he took the cows off the boat and shoot them all.
