KALAMUNDA MLA Matthew Hughes is welcoming the launch of OnBoardWA, a new website and online register for potential candidates to show their interest in sitting on Government boards and committees, particularly women.

Mr Hughes said the WA Government wants to increase the participation of women to 50 per cent by 2019.

“It is clear from my from my experience as an independent school principal that the presence of women on the boards I have been associated with has delivered real economic benefits, promoted better performance, improved governance and created stronger connections with community,” he said.
