Over-saturation with news is detrimental to our emotional health. If you read the newspaper or check Twitter in the morning, let that be enough. You don't need to turn on the TV or radio too, especially before bed. Anything you missed will be there tomorrow. Be very careful with how much news you let your children absorb also.

Heroic, distributed, servant or inclusive, these are the leadership lenses I will use to watch smugly from my sofa with a hot mug of tea, knowing that I'll sleep in a nice warm bed and that I know where my next meal is coming from.

My journey began with a flight from London to Doha, Doha to Bangkok and finally Bangkok to Chiang Mai. The pilot (or captain) of this third flight was a woman; I was equally surprised and delighted when I heard her dulcet tones welcome us over the speaker system. <em>Women in Thailand were not limited to being cabin crew, they could fly planes too</em>!

Artificial intelligence (AI) is still in its infancy, but it's poised to become the most disruptive technology since the Internet. AI will be everywhere - in your phone, in your fridge, in your car. Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa are just two examples.

<img alt="all women everywhere" src="http://i.huffpost.com/gen/5135874/original.jpg" width="300" height="35" /> As a black straight woman, from a working class background in Britain, my story may be very different to that of another woman who has not had to experience the same forms of discrimination. All stories are valid, illuminate our experience and highlight the diversity within diversity.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a woman of my word. I set out thinking about how I could help girls. My first foray was to provide workshops for teen Mums, but I didn't feel that was enough and I wasn't sure I was the right person to make a difference with that audience.

I recently delivered a talk on the rise of female entrepreneurship. How women were supporting women to achieve, even though it may difficult to gain funding and they may be juggling caring responsibilities alongside their work.

Contrary to the common portrayal of young women as selfie taking celebrity obsessives, wrestling with self-confidence and body issues, the findings offer an alternative perspective on a generation of girls comfortable in their own skin, driven by opportunity and liberated by technology.

I was recently invited to speak at an event called 'Books That Inspire' kindly hosted by Channel 4 and masterminded by Sajna Rahman Account Manager and Deputy Chair BIFM Rising FMs Committee. In this interview, Sajna shares what sparked the idea for the event and what inspires her.

I have the honour of being a mentor for the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women and was recently asked to provide an online session for their mentees, all of which are women in developing countries. The aim of the session was to provide strategies and tips to help them overcome the challenges they may face.

Women breadwinners need to manage their money effectively and earn more. Shockingly, even in 2013 on average women earn 80% of what a man would earn doing the same role.
18/09/2013 13:02 BST
It's no surprise to us women that men are earning more, but the most recent report stating that High-flying women will typically be paid around £142,000 less in bonuses than a man doing exactly the same job brings it into sharp focus.

Imagine if your kindest and dearest girlfriend was being termed 'ugly' and belittled by the world, wouldn't you rush to her defence? I felt the same. You see for the last 12 years Hemel Hempstead has been my home, but more than that she holds great memories and friends.

There is no such thing as a '9-5 routine' any more states one respondent and the survey results indicate that flexible working is becoming more common than ever before to fit around our other responsibilities - not just children but other dependents.

There is no roadmap for women who are main earners. Like any adventure this is then both exciting and terrifying. The good news is that women have the opportunity to chart their own path and make being the breadwinner work for them and their families.

You can seek out YOLO moments and if you do I guess you notice them more. Or you can wait for them to appear to you in a clearing in the woods like my daughter. Both can be good.
