Women on Boards - Percentage Increase in Female Representation
Women On Boards - the Next Generation of Directors
There have been small, but encouraging, signs that the recent gains in the number of female directors on the boards of ASX200 companies are being matched in other key sectors in the economy, according to findings from the latest WOB Boardroom Diversity Index (BDI).
The BDI tracks the representation of women on the boards of 850 organisations across Australia on an annual basis. The data is current as of January 2012.
The 2012 index shows that sectors including superannuation, credit unions, health and sport have shown small increases in the percentage of women on the boards of their organisations in the past year.
The full 2012 Boardroom Diversity Index is available alphabetically by company and also by percentage of female representation on the Women on Boards website: at:http://www.womenonboards.org.au/pubs/bdi/2012/index.htm
