Identifying family time as the most critical moment in his week, Eane believes that any gender imbalance is caused by passive action.
He says, “We aren’t actively creating opportunities for women in workplace environments where there is a gender imbalance. Opportunities, when they arise, often they do so passively. I challenge all of us to look for what we can do actively to create those opportunities for us to achieve equity and parity.
“I believe that part of the gender balance problem lies within each of us, as well as the solutions. As a single father, with three daughters and a son, I recognise the critical role that I play as a role model at home, at work and in society. Every second of every day, my actions, behaviours and attitudes impact someone somewhere, and it’s important for me to set the right example.”
“It takes all colours to make a rainbow and diversity in the workplace is key to that success. Some of my best managers have been females, and my mentor is also female. I have found them to empowering leaders and extremely empathetic people. I would love to think that one day my kids can grow up believing that they can be who they want to be free of judgement and stereotypes.”
Enjoying the perks of an active lifestyle, Eane is a keen hobbyist. He is part of a Viking historical re-enactment society, enjoys his martial arts and playing lacrosse.
