New Zealand's government is prepared to force private businesses to appoint more women directors if companies don't make sufficient progress themselves, Minister for Women Julie Anne Genter says. The government said last week that it will ensure half of all directors on state sector boards and committees are women by 2021, compared with 46 percent at the end of 2017 . By comparison, women held just 19 percent of directorships across the 159 companies listed on the main board of the New Zealand stock exchange, according to a report in January.
