ACT diversity register

The ACT Diversity Register is an online platform that seeks to encourage and promote the participation of women and people with diverse experiences and backgrounds onto ACT Government and non-government boards and committees.  
The Diversity Register connects women and people with diverse experiences with ACT Government and non-government board vacancies. It also provides support for taking on board and leadership roles through resources to help prepare you for a board or leadership role, and opportunities to participate in training and networking.  We are encouraging individuals to join the Diversity Register today to gain access to board vacancies and training opportunities:
The Register is open to all people who identify as women, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ) people, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people, people with culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people who identify as having a disability are particularly encouraged to join the Register.
We are also encouraging all ACT boards and committees, community and business to advertise their board and committee vacancies, training and networking opportunities through the Diversity Register.  Advertisements and notices can be posted directly on the register at
The ACT Government has set a 50% target for female representation on ACT Government boards and committees, and government funded ACT sporting bodies are moving to 40% female representation by 2020.  The Diversity Register is designed to support these targets and to support all boards and committees across the ACT to have a membership that reflects the community they serve. 
Further information on the Register as well as a range of supporting material including How To Guides, Information Sheets and FAQs can be found at: or at
