Lunchbox / Soapbox
View all events in this series
Women are being increasingly represented in the business world and the global discussion on gender equality is raging fiercely right now. But in a century where we have seen women given the vote and the right to work despite marriage and children, we still do not see women being paid equally and we still do not see any serious numbers of women at the top.
So are we seeing genuine change happening? Will the changes be sustainable? And what does it mean for men? Will they be banished to the kitchen?
Kate O'Reilly is the managing director of Optimiss Consulting and a passionate advocate for women in business and finance.
We love exploring ideas at the Wheeler Centre, and encouraging others to do the same. That’s why every Thursday lunchtime we hand the microphone over to the great thinkers, dreamers and orators of our time.
With a dazzling range of passionate speakers and unusual topics, our soapbox provides a platform for the eclectic, topical and enlightening stories you won’t hear elsewhere. This is the most memorable lunch break you’ll have all week.
If you’re in need of sustenance of body as well as mind, the MOAT lunch cart will be serving delicious $10 lunchboxes in the Performance Space from 12.20pm.
