Increasing the Number of Women in Senior Executive Positions

Increasing the Number of Women in Senior Executive Positions: Improving Recruitment, Selection and Retention Practices

The Business Council of Australia launched its Action Plan for Enduring Prosperity in July 2013. Included in the plan was the goal of increasing the number of women in senior roles in BCA organisations to 50 per cent in the next decade.

To assist our member companies and the wider business community in achieving this goal, the BCA has developed a best practice resource kit titled Increasing the Number of Women in Senior Executive Positions: Improving Recruitment, Selection and Retention Practices.

BCA President Tony Shepherd has written to all BCA member CEOs encouraging them to use the kit within their organisations.

The President’s letter to member CEOs, set of checklists and research report can be downloaded here.

Redressing the low representation of women in senior levels of management is an imperative that will have widespread social and economic benefits. The Increasing the Number of Women in Senior Executive Positions kit has been developed to help progress this important national interest goal.
