Chance to get on board

Kalamunda Reporter - - Street Watch -

KALA­MUNDA MLA Matthew Hughes is wel­com­ing the launch of OnBoardWA, a new web­site and on­line reg­is­ter for po­ten­tial can­di­dates to show their in­ter­est in sit­ting on Gov­ern­ment boards and com­mit­tees, par­tic­u­larly women.

Mr Hughes said the WA Gov­ern­ment wants to in­crease the par­tic­i­pa­tion of women to 50 per cent by 2019.

“It is clear from my from my ex­pe­ri­ence as an in­de­pen­dent school prin­ci­pal that the pres­ence of women on the boards I have been as­so­ci­ated with has de­liv­ered real eco­nomic ben­e­fits, pro­moted bet­ter per­for­mance, im­proved gov­er­nance and cre­ated stronger con­nec­tions with com­mu­nity,” he said.
