Talking women, money & the gender pay gap at WOBChat

It was a bit book club and a bit financial advisory last week, as WOB chatted with member, Kate McCallum, on her book 'The Joy of Money - The Australian women's guide to financial independence'.
Co-authored with Julia Newbould, the book looks at money as a means to enabling choice around your values, goals and priorities in life.  It then covers the practical elements at the intersection of money and life.

With the gender pay gap at 13.9%, women more likely to live in poverty than men and an alarming increase in older women’s experience of poverty, it is timely to remind women of the importance of thinking about their finances. The full chat can be heard in our members' only online community platform - WOBShare here.

On the topic of the gender pay gap, we are delighted that Executive Director of the Workplace Gender Equality Agency, Libby Lyons (pictured top right), will be joining us for WOBChat on 2 September. Libby came to the WGEA in 2015 after a successful career in corporate and government affairs at BHP (Olympic Dam) and other major corporations.

On a personal level, she was born in Tasmania, is the grand-daughter of Dame Enid Lyons, the first Australian women elected to the House of Representatives and the Cabinet,  and has worked, lived and loved in remote areas around Australia and overseas. The Australian Women's Weekly ran a story on Libby in 2019, which provides some lovely insights into her passion for justice and equity.
