MYOB Women in Tech, part two: Banqer co-founder Kendall Flutey on giving up the corporate world to chase a dream

Forget the ingredients touted as necessary to make a little girl in the age-old nursery rhyme, What Are Little Boys Made Of?

This is because although the country has made big strides when it comes to inclusivity, there’s still work to do before true equality is reached.

Katie Byrne talks candidly to Banqer’s Kendall Flutey about carving her career path, overcoming personal challenges and finding grit.
