Fifty percent female: BHP’s massive ambition for workplace gender diversity

The Australian Financial Review reports it has adopted a new goal (it’s not calling it a target) to see half of its workforce become female within nine years, across all levels including the board. They’re a long way off that in 2016, at just 17.5% female, across its 28,000-strong organisation.

Chief executive Andrew Mackenzie made the commitment in London at BHP’s annual general meeting. It’s an “aspiration goal” he said – one that’s not binding but will still see the group undergo “significant change”.
