The Tasmanian Government is committed to a target of 50 per cent representation of women across government boards and committees by July 2020.
On 1 July 2015, the Minister for Women, Jacquie Petrusma MP, released the Women on Boards Strategy 2015-20: A Five-Year Plan for Improving Gender Equity on Tasmanian Government Boards and Committees.
The Strategy outlines actions for increasing women’s participation on government boards and committees. It also complements the Tasmanian Women’s Plan 2013-18 and will help break down the barriers that produce inequities for women and girls.
On 30 September 2016 the first report on the implementation of the Women on Board Strategy 2015-2020 was released. The report shows that the percentage of Tasmanian Government board and committee positions held by women had increased from 33.8 per cent in April 2015 to 39.6 per cent in August 2016. When looking only at women board members, this represents an increase of around 17 per cent.

For the third year, the Tasmanian Government is supporting the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) to offer the following corporate governance course scholarships in 2018:
This Program aims to drive a more rapid increase in the number of Tasmanian women who are board-ready and to foster emerging female talent. Applications will close COB Friday 15 September 2017. AICD now invites applications:
