Some months ago I gave oral evidence to a House of Commons inquiry, ‘Women in the Workplace’. On the same panel was Heather McGregor, the owner and chief executive of Taylor Bennett, a London-based recruitment agency. She boasted of the gender balance in her company. Of the 22 directors and employees, 20 were women.
We see the same pattern across both the public and private sectors. Men appoint women to senior jobs, and the women use their power ruthlessly to appoint women at the expense of men. My thanks to the MHRA who’s just pointed me towards a piece on the management team of an agency of the Australian government, the Workplace Gender Equality Agency. There are no men in the team. Yet another female-driven gravy train financed by taxpayers.
