NAWO - In Conversation

Aug 21, 2019

With Professor Amalia Di Iorio and Megan McCracken.

The whole confidence myth  - is it time it was busted! Our guests in this podcast say yes and they take two different angles on this topic.


Professor Amalia Di Iorio explains how self-efficacy is the key to increased female participation on boards and executive level roles. We discuss the four constituent parts of self-efficacy and how important it is for us as women to seek these four component parts for ourselves and how critical it is for organisations to support their female talent in these 4 constituent parts to better enable success;

  1. Experiencing small successes
  2. Having strong role models
  3. Being given immediate and constructive feedback
  4. Being willing to take on new tasks as challenges


Megan shares insights from her extensive operational experience and talks about the importance of fixing systems (in contrast to fixing women).  Megan’s passion for supporting women in how to navigate ‘broken’ systems, and the capabilities that can help us as women to achieve this shines through in this conversation.
