42, un­der­stands about the chal­lenges fac­ing women in the work­force. As South Aus­tralian Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion gen­eral man­ager sales and com­mer­cial, Ms Klei works 50 to 60 hours aweek.

She has two daugh­ters, aged seven and five, and a hus­band who works part-time.

‘‘I tend to think that awork­ing mother needs a bit of flex­i­bil­ity, so you work from home or on a Sun­day,’’ she says. ‘‘I look at my work­ing week as seven days. It’s too stress­ful to try to cram in ev­ery­thing from nine to five and then re­lax. You have to be men­tally flex­i­ble. It’s about the job you need to do and the out­comes you need to achieve, not the hours at your desk.’’

Ms Klei is the first fe­male se­nior ex­ec­u­tive at SACA, which re­cently ap­pointed its first fe­male board mem­ber, An­drea Slat­tery.
