The latest from Juliet Bourke

Grey innovation: disrupting age stereotypes in fintech
Sometimes you don't even know you hold a stereotype until it is right in your face.

Why are TED talks so successful? Feeling the love
24 hours after my first TEDx event and I am still trying to process the experience. The best description I can come up with is that it's like a warm hug from an old friend.

Segment on ABC24 for International Women's Day
A new study shows that companies who employ more women on their boards make more money. Juliet Bourke discusses with ABC24.

"You're So Well Dressed, for a Straight Guy": the Dilemma of Guerilla Stereotypes
What do you say when someone offers a compliment which comes with a sting in the tail? Do you take the compliment and ignore the tail — feeling a little soiled in the process? Do you point out the tail and decry the compliment, thereby offending the complimenter? Neither option seems optimal, so what’s to be done?

TEDx SouthBank talk
Do more opinions lead to better results in business and in life? If so what kind of opinions? Deloitte Australia Human Capital Partner Juliet Bourke shares her experience and research into the area of business diversity and inclusion to answer the question 'Which two heads are better than one?'

ABC Radio interview - Corporate Australia and gender equality
Juliet Bourke tells us why David Morrison's appointment as Australian of the Year will have a real impact on corporate Australia. 

The dilemma of campaigning for others
Do any of us have a legitimate voice in a debate about inequalities that face others? Do we have the right to push forward when some of the very people we are seeking to help are resistant to our efforts? Juliet Bourke says this is the very dilemma that faces the Chief of the Australian Army.

Getting personal about committing to diversity
Juliet Bourke describes how business leaders at Deloitte and elsewhere are working collaboratively with groups like Male Champions of Change and Chief Executive Women to transform workplaces across Australia—and shares some lessons about diversity and inclusion that are crucial to leaders everywhere.

The problem with corporate speak
Juliet Bourke catches up with Steve Vamos for a quick chat that turns into much more.

Great leadership: The elephant in the room
Intuitively we all know that great leaders are valuable property. Leaders are the difference between a great company and an “also ran”. Maybe we could say the same for many things – technology, processes or access to capital for instance?

Are you at breaking point
We send more than 100 billion emails a day. We check our phones 150 times a day. This can't continue. What needs to change?

What the heck is human capital?
Juliet Bourke reflects on giving a conference presentation, where the MC introduced her to the audience by reading out her bio and stumbling over the standard description that comes after her name: “Partner, Human Capital, Deloitte".

The heroes and heroines of workplace diversity
How a group of men from Australia stepped up to change gender discrimination from within.
