On 20 September 2017 the WA Government launched a new initiative – OnBoardWA – to increase diversity on Government boards and committees.
This initiative is one tool to assist in achieving the goal of 50% representation of women across all Government boards and committees by 2019, including in Chair and Deputy Chair roles.
A new website and register has been created – OnBoardWA at www.onboardwa.jobs.wa.gov.au.
This will allow potential board candidates to register their interest in being considered for Board and Committee appointments. Decision-makers will be able to search this register to identify suitable candidates and the wealth of excellent women leaders can be reached more effectively.
