Deloitte Australia chief executive Giam
Swiegers has been appointed to a new leadership group formed to
elevate the issue of women’s representation in the corporate
sector.

Each of the groups’ members will support one
senior woman from another Business Council of Australia member
company who has the potential to become a chief executive or CFO
herself within the next five years

The group is formed of male chief executives
and chairmen from Australian companies.

The group was formed after the Australian
Stock Exchange’s Corporate Governance Council published
recommendations on diversity.
