Who is Natasha Stott Despoja? Ms Stott Despoja was a senator for 13 years between 1996 and 2008. She is the founding Chair of the Foundation to Prevent Violence Against Women and their Children, an ambassador for Ovarian Cancer Australia and deputy chair of Beyond Blue. As a young Australian woman in a Leadership role for a growing and diverse company, I felt truly inspired by the article announcing the Former Democrats leader Natasha Stott Despoja Australia’s Ambassador for Women and Girls, a role she describes as her ‘‘dream job’’. Diversity in the workplace is becoming is a key strategy in optimising organisation capability and performance. With the ASX setting some ambitious gender diversity targets, along with the Business Council of Australia and the Australian Public Service Commission, it is apparent that having the right recruitment and retention strategies in place is crucial in hitting these targets. Diversity in any case brings new ideas and different approached to the workplace. An inclusive and flexible workplace will only empower and inspire us to think and work beyond what was traditionally permitted. Make sure you check out our Gender Diversity conference in May!
