More women needed in management
Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick has backed calls for companies to set targets to ensure women get into management positions. Dicko & Anjali on whether it will breed resentment.

Tuesday's release of the 2012 Australian Census of Women in Leadership which shows Australia has the lowest percentage of female executives compared with similar countries.
It found that two-thirds of ASX 500 companies have no female executives and only 12 have a female CEO.
But for the first time in its decade-long history, the census shows a jump in the number of women on boards, with 61.5 per cent of ASX 200 companies having at least one female director.
In the two years since 2010, women went from making up 8.4 per cent of ASX 200 directorships to 12.3 per cent. (AAP)
Time to stop talking, and start acting on the amount of foreign ownership taking our farms and industry. Jason Morrison looks at the fight farmers have undertaken as frustration boils over at inaction by politicians.
Jason Morrison is calling for more fairness when it comes to speed limits in work zones on our roads. Too often we see the speed limit lowered at times when no work is being done, and that causes driver frustration.
Perhaps the real dullard behind all of this is Madame Milne of the Slimegreens party - instal a quota system for the feminazi's to assist in the recruitment ad infinitum of their female feminazi's to every area of management across this country. Thus perpetuating the mess and the elimination of both young and old 'white' men from employment. That's another catch-cry for Ms Milne.Luigi T Cassimatis Thursday 29 November, 2012 - 2:08 PM
Imagine if we sent our Olympic teams overseas based upon gender balance. What nonsense.
Women need to compete for success just like men do. Otherwise we get an average result and average wont assist Australian business to compete Internationally or even in Australia. Read my e-book The Alpha Female, it explains it all.David Thursday 29 November, 2012 - 10:54 AM
What a load of abject nonsense - setting targets and/or a quota system to put women, indeed more women in managerial positions. The system should be left to the order of nature which essentially is the best, most efficient, well qualified and experienced applicant for the job! The contrary step to this is the left wing labor party socialist government method which has been used and abused and thus has already seriously failed.Jonathon L Benson Wednesday 28 November, 2012 - 2:54 PM
Obviously for any companies success it always must be a case of employing the best human-being, male or female to do the job. Putting token gesture, incapable females into crucial positions, just to make it look good, politically correctness stupidity, can ruin organisations. One only has to look at what is going on in Canberra as we speak! I think Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick is being a little unrealistic here and really I hope that she should always employ the best person to work in her office, male or female! Wouldn't she??GERMAINE Wednesday 28 November, 2012 - 10:44 AM
Is it possible that females aren't applying for these roles, or that the male applicant is more suited for the position?
What about the fact that there are more females than males in child care?
This is absolutely about giving women a free hand up. What an insulting interview!Dave4212 Wednesday 28 November, 2012 - 10:41 AM
Arh the old positive discrimination ploy being rolled out again! How about we just get back to the best person for the job result. Man, woman, monkey, dog, donkey, black, white, pink, purple, who cares as long as the right person gets the job instead of politically or sexually correct appointments.Peter Wednesday 28 November, 2012 - 9:57 AM
