An analysis of the board composition of NZX Top 100 companies with offices based in New Zealand, in terms of gender diversity. Of 574 board positions, 71 of them (11 percent) are held by 50 women. 45 percent of companies have no female board members. There is a tendency, although not a strong one, for larger companies to have more female members, and companies based in Auckland or Wellington are more likely to have female members than those in other regions.
