Queensland’s new Parole Board has more women than men.
And the state’s Opposition Corrective Services spokesman Tim Mander is not happy with the lack of diversity.
During estimates last night, Mander asked how the board was “diverse”, given its “major gender imbalance.”
The board is 68% female and 32% male.
Mander’s upset at the pathetic 30% male representation on this board, but most boards (although admittedly government is doing better) have still never cracked the 30% female mark. Many have still never appointed a single female board member.
