Perth in Focus - Gender Boardroom Quotas, Norway's Experience

Event Date: 
21 March 2018
Hyatt Regency Perth, Grand Ballroom
99 Adelaide Terrace

In June 2015, the Committee released its landmark report Filling the Pool, which looked at the gender imbalance in the Australian workforce, particularly in WA. Identifying that Western Australia had the largest pay gap in the country, at 25.3%, the report looked at why women weren't participating or progressing in corporate life and proposed a roadmap of 31 interlocking recommendations for government, the corporate sector and women.

At the next Perth in Focus luncheon, Dr Morten Huse, Professor at BI Norwegian Business School, Department of Communication and Culture will be presenting the Committee's latest FACTBase Bulletin on 'Gender in the Boardroom: Learnings from world-leader Norway'.

After the keynote address, there will be a Q&A panel session with business leaders who will reflect on the research and will discuss what their organisations are doing.

We hope you can join us to help advance this important conversation.
