Atalanta COO in the Financial Times

On Saturday 21 May 2022, Anthony Albanese led Australia’s Labor party to a landmark victory in national elections, ousting Liberal Scott Morrison as Prime Minister.

Our Chief Operating Officer Elizabeth Ames sat down with The Financial Times’ Robert Shrimsley to dissect the results—and explore the lessons that Britain’s Conservative Party should take from Morrison’s failed re-election.

Elizabeth, who began her career as a diplomat in Australia’s Foreign Service, points to the alienation of women voters during Morrison’s term—which was marred by allegations of sexual abuse against several high-profile MPs and their staff—as a major failure. She adds that the success of the “teal” independents, a newly emerged group of mostly women candidates running on a platform of climate action and accountability in politics, is a sign for leaders globally to “take professional women seriously as a voting cohort”.

Australia’s election results should be a catalyst for governments worldwide to recognise—and value—women. Atalanta is proud to work with organisations that champion women’s leadership in all areas of public life and tackle the root causes of gender inequality.
