The Department of Finance "Policy on Equality and Diversity" sets out our policy in relation to interview boards and gender balance. It states that, "The Department requires balanced gender representation on all of its internal interview boards. It also requires that persons serving on internal boards receive thorough briefing, including directions in relation to equality." This policy is adhered to for all interview boards under the auspices of the Department of Finance.
