WLIA Executive Director, Amy Mullins visited the Sky News Melbourne studio to speak with Ashleigh Gillon about Kate Ellis MP’s retirement from politics, the difficulties parliamentarians face in balancing politics and family life and what needs to change.
“Politics is one of those areas which is really behind in changing its workplace policies. We often see politics as not a workplace… but it is. It has other demands on politicians’ time, but I think that means we should actually be more innovative in how we do politics and ask – what could we change to make it easier for politicians to do their jobs, but also be with their families and be personally fulfilled? And that’s something that will make them better politicians.”
