Nina Noonan Power of Reflection and Blossoming

Nina Noonan is the guest on this episode of Women In Leadership. She says systemic barriers still exist for women in the workplace and often companies are not aware of it until someone points it out. “Some organizations have picked up on that and are trying to create a different system around that. But you know, very often, if there’s a systemic barrier, we might not even know it is one, until somebody points that out. But if a meeting is being scheduled for five o’clock, and we don’t stick to a clear finishing time, by default, it might affect your female colleague, the one who has to excuse herself perceived early and run off because the crash closes at six. That may not be a problem for your male colleague who doesn’t have to go off because his wife picks up the child. So nobody might say I’m putting up a barrier deliberately here for women, but ultimately, what it means is if it is a woman who has to leave early, that’s how she’s going to be perceived.”

Dr Orlaigh Quinn Trail Blazing Secretary General

Dr Orlaigh Quinn the guest on this podcast is one of a rare breed. She rose through the Irish Civil Servant to become the Secretary General or head of the government Department of Enterprise Trade and Employment in Ireland.  There have only ever been 13 women to reach this position. What is even more impressive is that she was a trail blazer with few women role models. This reason there were so few women in senior leadership ranks was in no small way due to the fact that the Marriage Bar was in place in Ireland until 1973. This rule meant that when a woman got married, she was barred from her job and had to resign her position in the public service.
