EP 20 – Licia Heath

Her light bulb moment came after the birth of her first child whilst working in a fast-paced financial services environment. She was exhausted by the work and mental load. Things just didn’t seem fair, and this helped give rise to a purpose to encourage and fearlessly support more women to enter the political arena and start to change policies so that they reflect half of the population.

It was an eye-opener then, and today she’s constantly outraged and determined to help change the barrier that prevent women from stepping up and into leadership positions.

It was a light bulb moment for her which has driven a life-long commitment towards helping teams thrive because of their difference be that gender, culture or other.
EP 16 – Sally Loane
Sally Loane has a beautiful voice and it’s one many of us have listened to because she was the journalist and host of the Morning program on 702 ABC Sydney for many years. Growing up she was told that girls could do anything – thanks to a progressive 70s school and upbringing. As a journalist she never felt under paid or overlooked because of her gender. But when she hit the corporate sector to enter the world of financial services, she experienced her own lightbulb moment, that she likens to attending a boys school, and suddenly it allowed her to see why so many women feel alienated and not at home in leadership.
