Women in charge (NZ workforce census 2010)

Every two years the Human Rights Commission carries out a voluntary survey of the top companies and executives and governance bodies across New Zealand. There were a number of interesting points to arise out of the data. Here are a few items that I found interesting -
  • Thirteen companies out of 100 have two or more board members who are women. 
  • Only 43 of the top 100 companies have any female directors.
  • Two women hold the top jobs as chief executives among the top 100 NZSX companies.
Unfortunately the numbers don't lie. The statistics speak for themselves.
So what does this say about women and governance/leadership?
Male dominated areas of governance in New Zealand continue unabated.
