“I don’t agree that it’s not possible to find women anymore. I might have said this five years ago about some industries, but we have people across every single industry in this country which are female,” Former Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick.

"The declining representation of women in senior levels of management cannot continue. We risk not getting the best talent for the job and women not reaching their true potential. Such a situation is not good for individuals, business or the economy."

− BCA November 2013

"In the future, there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders."

− Sheryl Sandberg

"Seventy percent of household purchasing decisions are made by women, according to the Boston Consulting Group. Those decisions are not just about grocery lists or kids' clothes - women also choose big ticket items such as cars and vacations. So, if 50 percent of the staff at a company is female, and women drive 70 percent of the buying decisions for its products, what possible rationale can senior management have for leaving women out of the corporate decision-making process?"

− Richard Branson

"Gender equity is not about women’s interests – it’s about the national interest."

− Brian Hartzer CEO of Australian Financial Services, Westpac

"It’s a challenge; I think it’s sad that we don’t have more females in leadership positions, we need to do more."

− APN CEO Michael Miller

"Making inclusive leadership the norm, rather than the exception might be the circuit breaker we need to fix this issue. None of us want to say again this is going to take time. We have said that enough."

− Mike Smith CEO ANZ

"I don’t agree that it’s not possible to find women anymore. I might have said this five years ago about some industries, but we have people across every single industry in this country which are female."

− Sex Discrimination Commissioner with the Australian Human Rights Commission, Elizabeth Broderick

"Women hold only 17 per cent of senior management jobs, and 3.5 per cent of ASX- listed companies have female CEOs."

"Diversity is simple maths. The profitability of companies with gender-balanced senior teams outperforms the industry average by over 34 percent."

− McKinsey

"We’ve seen what can be accomplished when we use 50 per cent of our human capacity. If you visualise what 100 per cent can do, you’ll join me as an unbridled optimist."

− Warren Buffett
