More to do on gender equality in leadership
Champions for Change has published year one results of a new annual gender and ethnicity survey of more than 80,000 New Zealand employees. The report reveals that women are under-represented in senior management roles, highlighting areas where organisations can concentrate efforts to grow their female talent pipelines.
The survey was undertaken by 29 organisations in the Champions for Change group, including some of New Zealand’s largest companies and public sector employers. The full Champions group includes 44 organisations. Not all were able to report in the first year due to the complexity of assessment. The Champions group has a goal of 100% participation in 2019 and beyond.
