Australian Olympic Committee Hires Three Women To Board In Quest For Gender Equity
Published April 5, 2013
GENDER SHIFT: BLOOMBERG's Dan Baynes reported the shift "echoes similar moves in cricket, rugby union and rugby league to have more women among the decision makers in Australian sports." Catherine Harris, the chair of Australia’s largest independent fresh produce retailer, "was appointed to the inaugural Australian Rugby League Commission last year." The Australian Rugby Union named cruise ship operator Carnival Australia CEO Ann Sherry as its first female director in July, while former Ericsson Australia Managing Dir Jacquie Hey "broke the 107-year male domination of Cricket Australia’s board in October when she became its first female independent director" (BLOOMBERG, 4/3). In Sydney, Samantha Lane reported the Australia Sports Commission, in the ''Winning Edge'' strategy it unveiled last year to address the plummeting performance in Australian sport, said that "sporting boards should be at least 40 per cent women, arguing that diversity makes them better and stronger" (THE AGE 4/5).
