Governance NZ

Global webinar: Women in the Boardroom

Thursday 11 March, 9pm (NZST)

The Chartered Governance Institute will soon release its thought provoking report – Women in the boardroom: An international governance stocktake.

While the last decade has seen an improvement in board gender diversity the change is slow and patchy, being most successful in statutory boards in countries where there is political will for change.

As part of International Women’s Day - #ChooseToChallenge, and to coincide with the release of the Institute paper examining the reality of diversity across multiple countries, you are invited to join this webinar and hear from five experts who will discuss what strategies have been successful, how cultural differences have an impact and how men in senior positions of influence can make a difference.

The international speaker panel includes NZ Fellow, Dr Rosanne Hawarden FCG FGNZ, who also authored this report.

Hear a global perspective from five experts on their take on the conclusions of the report and the challenge to increase diversity in the boardroom;

  • What measures have worked well toward increasing the percentage of women in the boardroom?
  • What have been the main drivers of increasing diversity and how do they differ across countries?
  • What are the unique aspects of a role in governance that can be a stepping-stone to moving into board roles?
