Manatū Wāhine Ministry for Women is inviting those who have applied for and/or been on public sector boards and committees to complete an online survey.

This survey is designed to help us better understand the experiences of people in the public sector governance space and how the experience could be improved. 

Those enrolled currently or previously with the Ministry for Women’s Nominations Service can also complete an additional part of the survey to share your thoughts on the nominations online portal and the support you received from the Nominations Service. 

The survey will take between 10 to 20 minutes to complete. All responses are confidential and anonymous.

The survey will close at 5pm, Wednesday 6 March 2024.

We will share the key findings and recommended improvements with database members and other government Nominations Services to help us identify how we can better support women into governance. 

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the survey, email us at
