Women on Boards Strategy - Stage 2.DOC
The Queensland Government has previously committed to increasing the numbers of women on Queensland Government boards, committees and councils. In 2006, the Government endorsed the Women on Boards Strategy, with the primary aim that, where possible, 50 per cent of new appointees to Queensland Government bodies should be women.
There are compelling reasons for achieving greater gender diversity in leadership positions across Australia’s public, private and non-government sectors. National and international research has consistently highlighted the organisational benefits associated with women in leadership roles, including the financial, social and environmental business outcomes.
The Office for Women has developed the Women on Boards Strategy – Stage 2. It provides evidence-based strategies to increase the numbers of board ready females and to assist government to make gender appropriate appointments.

Stock Route Network Management Bill 2011.DOC
The Queensland stock route network comprises approximately 2.6 million hectares of roads declared as stock routes and reserves for travelling stock. These roads and reserves also have iconic cultural heritage, recreational, environmental and biodiversity attributes.
The Stock Route Network Management Bill 2011 contains reforms to the management and use of the stock route network in Queensland and is based on recommendations developed by a panel of stock route network managers and users as well as with input from members of the public.
The Bill is aimed at ensuring that the stock route network continues to provide an alternative livestock transport network and that its inherent biodiversity, cultural heritage and recreation values are protected.
The Bill aims to achieve this by establishing a user-pays system with a focus on ensuring all grazing uses of the stock route network are regulated, managed sustainably and charged according to the level of benefit gained.

Renewable Energy Industry Development Plan.DOC
Renewable Energy Industry Development Plan (REIDP) is a key component of the Queensland Renewable Energy Plan (QREP) and will contribute to achieving the QREP goal of attracting 20 per cent of investment in renewable energy generation driven by the national Renewable Energy Target to 2020.
The REIDP initiatives will improve access to finance, drive technological innovation, develop a skilled workforce, remove regulatory barriers and provide better access to information relevant to renewable energy development in Queensland.
