Analysis by the Australian Institute of Company Directors shows that women held 33.6 per cent of board seats at companies in the S&P/ASX 200 Index at the end of May. This compares with 30.9 per cent at the same time in 2020. However, the AICD figures also show that just 21 companies in the ASX 200 are chaired by women, compared with 18 in 2020 and 14 in the previous year. Lendlease director Nicola Wakefield Evans says action is needed to boost the number of women who chair blue-chip companies.
