New Zealand is running out of leaders

– Posted on September 13, 2022


New Zealand does not tamper with the parity requirements of the national sporting bodies. The rugby union, New Zealand Rugby, has been fined for failing to meet the 40% women rule on its board of directors. It will see its annual public support, which New Zealand pays to the National Federations, by NZ$280,000 (€170,000). As of December 31, 2021, New Zealand Rugby was the only one of 65 national sports bodies that had not published a 40% quota for women on their board, a requirement set by the government. Only three of the nine New Zealand Rugby board members are currently women. Comment from Raelene Castle, CEO of Sport New Zealand: “Although they have made real progress toward compliance, with three women out of nine members of the board of directors, New Zealand Rugby indicated that the earliest date they could be in good standing with the 40 per cent target for female representation would likely be in April. 2023Result: Rugby union can still be penalized next year with a new fine.
