Challenges for women leaders in a post-truth environment

Presented by Gillian Triggs

How can women contribute to the solution

Presented by Prof Kerrie Sadiq CTA

This video is a filmed session from the Women in Tax National Congress 2017, PowerPoint slides are incorporated with the presentation.

To demonstrate the difference that women could potentially make in the decision making process and policy choices, the potential for ‘in-group’ bias, path dependency, and the capacity for different thinking between men and women, the audience was asked to consider their own conscious and unconscious gender biases in relation to two short stories about tax. The first relates to the tax deductibility of child care costs while the second relates to human rights obligations.
