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.

Speakers:

  • 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.

Culture and the benefits of being small

A few interesting items have piled up in Moxie’s inbox:

Also The Guardian had an interesting article talking about how great the UK’s technology sector is, including some words on game makers, big data businesses, and how the government and attitudes to business help.
