Inbox: Cherchez la femme

Strategic Pay has released research providing snapshot of female representation in NZ board rooms.
When looking at organisation size, those with between $5.1 million and $10 million annual turnover have the most female directors at 32 percent. Those organisations with between 1001 and 2000 employees have 28 percent female directors. At the other end of the spectrum, organisations with 50 or fewer employees also have relatively high representation of women on their boards (23 percent).
Broken down by type of organisation, Strategic Pay’s research shows Crown-owned public sector organisations have the highest proportion (38 percent) of female directors. They are followed closely by central/local government and not-for-profit entities with 35 percent female directors.
This year’s survey is based on analysis of 2136 individual directorships across 397 organisations.
The full report includes current trends and practices relating to directors’ fees within New Zealand organisations. This is Strategic Pay’s 20th such survey. All data and information relate to 1 May 2012. M
