Michelle Payne’s Melbourne Cup win reminds us we still have too few women leaders

Michelle Payne

Michelle Payne’s win in the Melbourne Cup horse race reminds us that there are still many ‘firsts’ left for women to achieve in traditionally male dominated worlds – and even those that aren’t.

This thought provoking TED talk from Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO, provides some interesting perspectives on why we still have too few women leaders.

While much of it is down to us males, there are also some points women should take note of too. So think twice before calling a young girl bossy for speaking her mind or thinking that just because you are pregnant you can’t go for that next step in your career.
