Many more women on NZSE100 boards

Until I saw this article in NBR, I didn’t realise how much of an increase there has been with women directors on NZSE100 boards. The stats are:

  • 2008 – 8.65%
  • 2010 – 9.32%
  • 2012 – 14.75%
  • 2016 – 20.10%
  • 2017 – 22.17%

So since 2008, the proportion of directors who are women has increased by over 150%. All without quotas.

There is a lot of research that shows boards with a mixture of men and women on the board perform better than all male boards.
