About the Tasmanian Women's Register

The Tasmanian Women’s Register is a secure on-line database of women who would like to be appointed to Government boards and committees. The Register assists in identifying suitable women who are skilled, experienced and interested in appointment. The Register is administered by the Community Development Division, in the Department of Premier and Cabinet.

The Women’s Register enables you to enter information about your educational and professional qualifications, employment and unpaid work experience as well as other areas of interest and expertise. You can also indicate your interest in appointment to a board or committee in the business or community sectors, and/or your interest in programs which provide mentoring support to girls and women.
