3:10 Feature Interview - Lise Edwards - 120 years ago, New Zealand became the first country in the world to give women the vote. Kate Sheppard's vision of equality for women in the voting booth has not translated to equality for women in the board room. Women make up half the workforce, but occupy only a fraction of the very top corporate jobs. In fact, 27% of Fortune 500 companies have no women on their boards at all. Women simply aren't achieving at the same rate as men. Lise Edwards is passionate about changing that. She is the former Diversity Manager at Oracle and was was named one of Silicon Valley Business Journal's 100 Women of Influence for 2013.
3:30 In today's Asian Report; In spite of initial consternation about her appointment, our ethnic communities welcome Dame Susan Devoy into her role as Race Relations Commissioner. Lynda Chanwai-Earle hears how the new job's going from the Race Relations Commissioner herself.

4:06 Julia Hartley-Moore and Chris Wikaira are on the Panel. We'll discuss the developments with the Syria crisis, the disappearance of chequebooks, we meant to get to this yesterday. Now you can backup your body in case of future mishap or even just ageing. Psychometric testing in the workplace, has it become a gravy train as the psychological assessors move in with their questionnaires deducing things about you of dubious worth? And the kids stalls every month at Whangaparoa, closed down by Auckland Council because someone questioned the hygiene of the cakes and biscuits and quiches.
