Ernst and Young conducted some research into the role of women in family businesses to see if they were leading the way or lagging behind non family owned enterprises.
In this episode we speak to Kim Harland of www.insights.org.au a not for profit, educational resource for family businesses based in Australia. She has produced an e-book based on the research and interviewed female leaders of family businesses from across the world.
We discuss many issues and challenges around gender equality and what family businesses can be doing to ensure equal opportunities exist within the family business.
We also ask Kim a question she asked her own interviewees 'What advice would you give to your 25 year old self?'
