A surge of strategies to overcome the gender equality gap has also been spear headed by public and some private organisations.Despite some progress, overall, women’s inclusion and equal representation in leadership remains slow. This book attempts to reflect on what is sustaining the barriers women experience in different Australian sectors and, in particular, focus on the concept and application of merit as it is the accepted underlying principle that governs recruitment and advancement for men and women in Australian workplaces.

This book also considers other strategies to equalize opportunities for women with a particular focus on quotas, voluntary and mandatory.Leading women and men were invited to discuss their thoughts on merit and quotas in relation to their nominated sector of involvement or their research of a sector of interest.Book chapters and authors are:Waiting for Gender Equality in Leadership as we rely on Merit and hold off Quotas: Is this approach effective?Dr Diann Rodgers-HealeyBreaking the Glass Ceiling?

Stephen Martin, Chief Executive, Committee for Economic Development for Australia (CEDA)I welcome this important addition to the debate on gender equality in Australia. Progress on this issue has unfortunately been very slow. It is for this reason it is vital it remains squarely on the agenda and books such as this are a key component in ensuring that happens.Elizabeth Broderick, Australian Sex Discrimination Commissioner, Australian Human Rights CommissionIncreasing the representation of women in leadership is a priority of national economic and societal importance.

As this book highlights, the opportunity of the untapped talent pool that women represent must be put in the broader context of gender equality. The featured experts provide interesting and thought provoking reflections across a range of key sectors. The book touches on the traditional concept of merit - and how womens talents and their merit is all too often invisible.

It also presents an important discussion on pathways towards greater gender equality by covering important topics such as voluntary targets and mandatory quotas, and workplace strategies to end sexual harassment and dismantle harmful stereotypes. This research is a important contribution for all those who are looking for ways to ensure that our workplaces are places where both men and women thrive.
