Hockey backs quota for women on boards

by on 8 March, 2011

Opposition frontbencher Joe Hockey says he would back enforced quotas that ensure 30 per cent of board positions are occupied by women.

He says corporate Australia has been given long enough to improve gender equality on the executive level after talking about it for more than a decade.

"If they don't meet a reasonable target within a period of time, then more punitive measures need to be taken by the parliament," he told ABC television on Monday.
