New Zealand’s Minister for Women, Jan Tinetti announced that the country has recorded the highest number of women employees in the public sector which stands at 52.5%.
To the media, Tinetti said, “"The facts prove that diverse boards bring a wider range of knowledge, expertise and skill. Which of course can only be of benefit to the organisation the board is governing.”
She further added that the government is aiming at making the public sector more inclusive for women and ensuring that their voices are heard around the round tables. Tinetti further added that this would help other women follow the path.
Additionally, the data also revealed that diversification of ethnicity has seen a significant increase in the country’s public sector.
