Abstract: This report reviews the outcomes and deliverables since the publication of the 'Missed Opportunities' report (Elix and Lambert 1998). It updates the quantification of women's contributions to the agricultural sector based on 2006 Census data, and explores whether such analyses can be conducted across all industry sectors. It identifies where women are located across occupations and industries in the Australian paid workforce and examines the reasons for women's low representation in formal leadership positions in agricultural and regional organisations. It concludes with recommendations for improving the proportion of women in formal leadership roles and enhancing women's leadership experiences.
