Gender Balance on Australian Government Boards

The Australian Government has committed to a gender diversity target of women holding 50 per cent of Government board positions overall, and women and men each holding at least 40 per cent of positions at the individual board level. This took effect from 1 July 2016.

The Gender Balance on Australian Government Boards Report 2016-2017 provides a statistical gender analysis of the composition of Australian Government boards for the period 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017.
