Accelerating Women (Telstra Business Awards)

Australian telecom behemoth ‘Telstra’ runs a program they’ve entitled the “Best of Business Awards”, within which there are eight categories. One of these categories specifically relates to gender, and it’s called ‘Accelerating Women’.

It’s said to be for “businesses actively challenging exclusion and inequality to create meaningful and lasting equity for women” (Source).

There is no award category specifically for men and/or boys. Why? Because males are doing so well in society that they don’t need (let alone deserve) any encouragement?

I’m not sure, so let’s ask them. (Done)

If and when they choose to respond then rest assured that I will post details here. Alternately should this post remain unchanged from this day forth, then you may confidently assume this organisation to be little more than a biased virtue-signaling joke.
