Launch of OnBoardWA

6 Oct 2017 7:16 PM - On 20 September 2017 the WA Government launched a new initiative – OnBoardWA - to increase diversity on Government boards and committees.

On 20 September 2017 the WA Government launched a new initiative – OnBoardWA - to increase diversity on Government boards and committees.

This initiative is one tool to assist in achieving the goal of 50% representation of women across all Government boards and committees by 2019, including in Chair and Deputy Chair roles.

A new website and register has been created – OnBoardWA at www.onboardwa.jobs.wa.gov.au .  

This will allow potential board candidates to register their interest in being considered for Board and Committee appointments. Decision-makers will be able to search this register to identify suitable candidates and the wealth of excellent women leaders can be reached more effectively.

In your capacity as Directors General and Chief Executive Officers you are asked to promote OnBoardWA through your networks to increase the pool of potential candidates. This may include providing a link on your websites or inclusions in other promotional material as appropriate.

If you or your delegates are interested in being able to search the register when you and your Board Chair are seeking to fill board vacancies, please email boards@dpc.wa.gov.au and you will be provided with log-in details and information on how to search the register. Please be aware that it may take time for candidates to register their interest.
