The Tasmanian Government is committed to increasing diversity and the representation of women on Tasmanian Government boards and committees.

On 22 November 2020, the Tasmanian Government released the ‘Women on Boards Strategy 2020-2025: Continuing our progress’. The Strategy builds upon the progress made under the ‘Women on Boards Strategy 2015-2020’, with a refreshed set of actions to deliver the target of 50 per cent representation of women across Government boards and committees.

The Strategy includes practical actions across four focus areas:

  • Strengthen pathways;
  • Create contemporary systems and processes;
  • Influence change; and
  • Monitor equity.

As at 30 June 2020, women held 46.4 per cent of positions on all Government boards and committees. This is an increase of 12.6 per cent since the release of the first ‘Women on Boards Strategy 2015-2020’ in 2015, when 33.8 per cent of all board positions were held by women.
