Moxie Podcast 18 (on women’s participation) out now

This is the podcast from the eighteenth Moxie Session, held 4 August 2014 in Auckland, New Zealand.

The topic is:

Have we taken seriously women’s participation in business and society as accelerants for New Zealand’s success or are we still treating it as a ‘women’s’ or ‘diversity’ issue. What’s to be gained and how do we get there faster, together.


  • Alex Mercer on boosting women’s investment
  • Vic Crone on confidence and being the only woman
  • Jacinda Adern on Parliament and potential solutions

Interview by Glenn Williams.
