The missing super and the isolated parents - Women's Agenda

The missing super and the isolated parents

The Women's Agenda Podcast

On the podcast this week, we talk the void created when a female leader goes.

We discuss Canada’s new Cabinet, one of only a handful that are gender-balanced in the world.

We explore how quotas work for the Nationals, seeing Keith Pitt returning to Cabinet.

And we delve into the next frontline of the pandemic: schools and childcare centres, where now the majority of people (given they are kids) are unvaccinated. This means centre closures, more pressure on the system and continued uncertainty ahead for parents, educators and teachers.

In our FinHacks segment, we look at the missing super for mothers and how the system needs to change to accommodate this gap. And Tarla highlights the simple thing we can all do for our superannuation.

The Women’s Agenda Podcast is produced by Agenda Media and made possible thanks to the excellent support of Superhero, the new app-based platform making investing accessible and affordable.
