A review of gender balance reporting and performance in the ASX200

Only eight per cent of ASX200 companies (16) have truly embedded the principles of gender diversity within their organisations rating a green light in the Women on Boards Traffic Light Index launched in Sydney today.

Speaking at the launch Women on Board Chair and report author Ruth Medd said “That while ASX200 companies significantly improved their reporting on gender balance in 2013, better performance is still eluding many

“Unfortunately 15.5 per cent (31 companies) rated red meaning they show little or no compliance at all with basic gender diversity principles, while 29.5 per cent (59) rated only slightly higher at 2.1, the bottom of the Amber category.”

“So there are 90 companies (31 +59) that could benefit from lifting their game around diversity initiatives.”
