Gender diversity in leadership delivers stronger outcomes for individuals and organisations, and supports economic growth.

The Government is committed to increasing the number of women in leadership positions in the public and private sectors, including meeting our new gender diversity target of men and women each holding 50 per cent of Australian Government board positions, effective from 1 July 2016.

We are also working with industry to increase women’s leadership in the private sector, which is the largest employer of Australian women.

We have partnered with organisations such as, the Australian Institute of Company Directors, the Australian Sports Commission and Chief Executive Women, to provide various nation-wide programs that support increasing the number of women in leadership positions.
