Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commissioner debates women in workplaces with Tom Elliott

‘We see a drop off at those higher end positions, whether it’s a chair position or directorships, my view is that there are still attitudes and structural impediments to women being able to flourish in those sorts of positions.’
