Motion: Tackling the Gender Imbalance in the Senior Civil Service 

That this Assembly notes the current gender imbalance across senior posts in the Northern Ireland Civil Service; accepts that, in the interests of equality and the utilisation of the skills, knowledge and talent of all civil servants, gender should not be an impediment to the recruitment, promotion and retention of personnel at senior grades; and calls on the Minister of Finance and Personnel to identify the reasons for the current imbalance, and to devise and implement a plan that will deliver a more balanced gender makeup of Grade 3, Grade 5 and Permanent Secretary posts within five years.

[Mr M McGimpsey]
