Australian lawyer and CEO Michelle Dixon believes inequality in the workplace is never as black-and-white as some of us would believe, and she is doing something about it.

Michelle makes everyone in her law firm Maddocks take unconscious bias training, and is even prepared to cut the salary of male partners to achieve gender pay equity.

She talks with Lynn Freeman.
