Join a board
When organisations have women in leadership roles there are economic, social and environmental benefits.
That’s why we have set 2 gender diversity targets to increase women’s representation on Queensland Government bodies.
The targets are:
- 50% of all new board appointees to Queensland Government bodies will be women
- 50% representation of women on Queensland Government bodies by 2020.
There are more than 300 Queensland Government boards, committees and other bodies which play an important role in providing leadership, direction and advice.
If you are interested in serving on government boards, committees and statutory authorities join the Queensland Register of Nominees to Government Bodies.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, women, people with expertise in multiculturalism, young people and people with disabilities are encouraged to join. This contributes to diversity in the boardroom, and can add different perspectives and approaches that have positive outcomes.
