Gender Equality Network -What it takes to have more women on boards

DCA’s Gender Equality Network, proudly sponsored by Clayton Utz, is open exclusively to DCA members and is designed to assist them in their preparations to meet reporting requirements on gender and to explore leading practice on gender diversity programs.

The business case for greater gender diversity on boards is pretty clear. KPMG’s recently released Enterprise's 2017 ASX 300+ Report found that mid-market companies with more women on their boards achieved higher revenue growth, profitability and shareholder returns than those without gender diversity (and also diversity of age, culture, experience and other factors).

The Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) has set a target of 30% for female board representation by the end of 2018. However, current levels of female representation show there is still a way to go.

At the next Gender Equality Network event, we will focus on these findings and explore what it takes to achieve greater female representation on boards.

Our guest speakers include:

  • Sarah Cain, Director, KPMG Enterprise, KPMG Australia
  • Ming Long, Non-Executive Director, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand
  • Louise Petschler, General Manager, Advocacy, Australian Institute of Company Directors.

The Gender Equality Network, proudly sponsored by Clayton Utz, is free and open exclusively to DCA members and is designed to explore leading practice on gender equality and to assist members in their preparations to meet reporting requirements on gender.
