  • Investors

    Main aims

    The purpose of the Investors Group is to help coordinate the investment community’s approach to gender diversity. In particular, to explain the investment case for more diverse boards; to encourage all investors to engage on the issue of board diversity with chairs and management teams and to consider diversity when voting on the Report & Accounts and the appointment and re-election of board members.

    Whilst we are strongly supportive of voluntary targets over quotas, we believe that it is important that investors actively oversee companies’ actions. We encourage investors to engage directly with companies in the first instance. However, we believe that, over time, this should extend to AGM voting in the event of inadequate board leadership.

  • Education

    Main aims

    The aim of the education working group is to influence and support ASX 200 chairs and non-executive directors through:

    • the provision of resources that present the business case for board diversity, 
    • highlighting board practices that promote and misguided thinking that acts as a barrier to increasing the number of women on boards, and 
    • recommending ways of improving the rate of appointment of female directors.
