McCarthy Mentoring supports senior talented women working in museums across Aust & NZ as part of the Council of Australasian Museum Directors Executive Mentoring Program. The program is an important initiative that strengthens leadership, builds industry networks and shares insights among some of the best and brightest in the sector. Since it’s start, more than 60 women have been nominated for their potential as future leaders and have been connected to Museum Directors and cultural executives as mentors. 48% of the inaugural group have since been promoted or given greater responsibilities. We were delighted to launch the 2017 Program and celebrate the graduates in Hobart recently.

Saluting Sydney Women: tribute to Wendy McCarthy AO

Proud to be part of the Sydney Women’s Fund special event honouring Wendy McCarthy AO, our business founder, educator, change-agent, company director, “disrupter” and mentor to many.

Close friend the Hon Dame Quentin Bryce led the tributes, warmly describing Wendy as a evangelist, promoter and persuader – one who has fought hard for women’s and children’s rights, shaken the status-quo and has supported so many in their careers and lives.

Continuing to inspire, Wendy discussed the power of friendships and passion, the importance of saying yes to opportunities and the critical role of education in lifting women out of poverty and disadvantage – “it’s the one thing that no one can ever take away”.

11 surefire ways to get power and make a ton of money

Cindy Gallop, former Chairman of ad agency BBH, risk-taker, TED speaker and plain-speaking champion for women’s rights shares her top tips for women in business:

  1. The only person who can make things happen for you is you. People can help you (i.e., champions), but you need to make it happen. 
  2. You’ll never own the future if you care what other people think.The fear of what other people will think is the single most paralyzing dynamic in business and life.
  3. Don’t just look for mentors but for champions as well
  4. Never give anything away for free
  5. Manage your own mind. Mind management tip: of all the things that stress you out every day, pick one thing and address only that one stress that day.
  6. Be totally unashamed of wanting to make a ton of money
  7. One of the quickest ways for women to make a money is to invest
  8. Don’t let anyone tell you what to do with your own money
  9. Social sharing can help make sh*t happen for women
  10. If you are working at a place that does not welcome and celebrate your talent, somewhere that does not allow you to disrupt and innovate in the way that you want to, get out, get another job.
  11. There is always a way over, around, under or through every obstacle. You just need to be creative about what that is. Take micro-actions.
