Who Actually Walks The Talk – Go Figure

May 21, 2013 | admin

Now Tony  start networking and tell everyone in the room what you do for a job!

WNA Member, Tony Abbott gave us a glimmer of hope for the future in his reply to the Budget on Thursday night when he announced that on his watch small business will be a cabinet portfolio within the Treasury department. Under the current Government it’s been an uphill battle for small business issues to be given […]

May 7, 2013 | Sue Lester

It's your 'unconscious blueprint' that decides whether you will eat two pieces of chocolate or the whole block.

Have you ever wondered why you don’t always feel as grown up and confident as you’d expect? Have you struggled to make significant changes in your life?

Political Stunt or Common Sense

April 2, 2012 | admin

Personally I’m over the moon about Tony Abbott’s recent suggestion for the Productivity Commission to investigate and cost the viability of the current childcare rebate being extended to cover in-home care. Is it a political stunt aimed at courting female voters as PM, Julia Gillard put it or just a plain common sense approach to childcare […]



Women in small business – have they been forgotten?

March 14, 2011 | admin

As part of last week’s IWD activites the Minister for the Status of Women, Kate Ellis announced the appointment of Helen Conway as the Director of the Workplace Gender Equity Agency (WGEA). Previously known as the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency (EOWA), it is a new federal body given new powers that […]

What lack of childcare places? Government’s take is that you are just imagining it

April 26, 2010 | admin

Whilst women are continually finding it a struggle to secure childcare places, it seems, according to the Government, they are simply imagining there is an issue. Not sure if you read about it, but late last week the Rudd Government broke its 2007 election promise to build 260 new childcare centres. Apparently the reason behind […]



Babes are likely to be out of the budget

February 24, 2009 | admin

This week-end the Government will receive the Productivity Commission’s recommendations on Maternity Leave. It appears that after all the carry-on about this idea it’s not going to even get a look-in as part of the May Budget. It seems the Nation is not in an economic position to implement it – well the Government had heaps […]
