Gender and Gender Equality
The gender pay gap and the super gap – what is the gender pay gap, why do women retire with nearly half of what men do and most importantly – what can we do to change the status quo?
How can organsations improve their gender performance? -hint, it’s not about fixing women or running salary negotiation workshops!

Fintech – Running her own fintech, as well as being on the Board of Fintech Australia, Carla can present on areas such as challenges and opportunities for fintechs, open banking/CDR and superannuation.
Design thinking and design strategy for organisations and entrepreneurs – Carla teaches design thinking and design strategy at the University of Sydney and has developed their award nominated MOOC. She is available to talk you through the elements of design thinking and how it can be applied from a product and startup perspective through to how it can be deeply embedded within the strategic framework of your organisation.
Entrepreneurship and startups
The ups and downs of start up and entrepreneurial life – Carla began Longevity App when her second child was only a newborn and knows all about building a globally scaleable startup whilst simultaneously balancing the demands of parent-hood.
Start up and gender equality – With only 17% of startups being female led, women receiving only 2% of the VC funding and 1% of government procurement contracts, Carla can speak on the realities of the startup landscape for women from both a theoretical and deeply personal perspective.
