​Women in the boardroom: International governance stocktake

This international governance stocktake examines the status of women on boards from a truly international perspective with comparable data from Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, the United Kingdom and Zimbabwe.

Most success has been in statutory boards in countries where there is political will for change.
