Ministry for Women
The Ministry for Women identifies women to be considered for nominated to state sector boards and committees. This includes positions on trusts, commissions, councils, tribunals and quasi-judicial bodies, review teams, reference groups, task forces, and unique roles where specific expertise is sought. The Ministry occasionally receives requests from outside the state sector as well.
The Ministry uses the personal information from your Curriculum Vitae (CV) to match your skills and experience against the requests we receive for candidates. Your personal information will be stored securely by the Ministry for Women. Under the Privacy Act 1993 (the Privacy Act) you are entitled to access and correct any personal information the Ministry for Women holds about you. We encourage you to update your personal information every 18 months or if you have taken on or ceased a role. Your records will only be held for two years from initial registration to the database unless you update these regularly. At any time you can advise the Ministry you no longer wish to be considered for appointment, the Ministry will delete your personal information from our database.
The Ministry may also pass on your personal information to third parties so that you can be considered for a board vacancy appointment. In the course of nominating you for suitable positions, your CV and personal details that you supplied to the Ministry, may be disclosed to:
