Yesterday the German parliament discussed about quotas for women in work … again.
And again they didn’t make a law, which guarantees women their equal part in work.

Women’s Wednesday again – today’s guest is Michèle Taylor. Thanks for joining us, Michèle and thanks for doing the interview.
Tell us about yourself.
My name is Michèle, I will be 50 next spring and I live with my partner and my 16 year old son. I studied at Cambridge University.
I am a coach, psychotherapist and trainer. This means I spend my time working with individuals to support their growth and development, facilitate groups to enable them to work more effectively together, and train organisations in a number of subjects, including Disability Equality.
I used to be a performer, writer and director in the theatre but I don’t do so much of that now, although I do occasionally perform stand-up comedy and sketches with a friend who is a very funny woman. Read the rest of this entry
This is our first interview with a strong woman about her career.
Thanks to Lisa for taking the time to answer our questions.
Tell us about yourself.
My name is Lisa, I’m a 42 year old self employed Career Counsellor & Work-life Coach.
Many people don’t really understand what I do, but basically I help people with career related matters.
I help people who are unsure about career choice using a variety of career counselling strategies. I also help people who are already pursuing a career to address issues, develop a career progression plan, learn more about further education and training or change jobs.
Another part of my role is assisting people develop a CV, write applications and improve their job interview skills. My day can vary from helping someone prepare a CV, counselling someone who has lost their job due to the economic crisis, to interview coaching someone via Skype to prepare them for an upcoming job interview.
