Western Times - - NEWS -

Fe­male rep­re­sen­ta­tion on agri­cul­ture boards has im­proved by 10 per cent over the past 10 months, reach­ing 47 per cent af­ter the lat­est round of ap­point­ments.

The minister said the key to find­ing the best peo­ple re­quired cre­at­ing an en­vi­ron­ment that would en­tice them to ap­ply, and changes were be­ing made in the ag sec­tor.

“If you do what you’ve al­ways done, you’ll get what you’ve al­ways got. “Our board re­cruit­ment must in­volve hav­ing a proper look for the best women and men – not just re­peat­ing the same old re­cruit­ment pro­cesses and get­ting the same re­sults,” he said.
