YWCA communications manager Chelsea Lewis said the survey showed most women were aspirational in their work and lives, adding that a lack of confidence is a strong barrier for those who do not aspire to be leaders.

Aboriginal Legal Rights Movement chief executive officer Cheryl Axleby said that female leaders at work had the compassion and knowledge to be role models for young women.
