Women on Boards

The Queensland Government is committed to increasing the number of women on boards in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

Our research has shown that diversity of gender on boards provides financial, performance and social benefits.

A range of resources are available to assist in making a positive difference for gender parity in Queensland.

    Board commitment needs to remove barriers to result in concrete action.
