- At 30 June 2022, women represented 32.3 per cent of our employee workforce up from 17.6 per cent when we set our aspirational goal. We are confident of achieving gender balance by the end of FY2025.
- We also improved our representation of women in leadership by 2.7 percentage points compared to FY2021, with 27.9 per cent female people leaders at the end of FY2022.
- BHP highlights inclusivity and diversity by analysing and sharing data on global dashboards the same way they do for ‘hard’ performance metrics.
- Their data shows that their most inclusive and diverse teams outperform other teams on safety, culture and productivity. People in these teams feel safe to speak up (up to 68 per cent more likely), share ideas and work together to solve problems and make better decisions, and they bring a diversity of views, backgrounds and experiences to the workplace that are respected and valued by their peers and leaders.
