Our aim is to create an environment where people feel involved, respected and connected, where the richness of ideas, backgrounds and perspectives are harnessed to create business value. A culture of inclusion means that differences are valued and encouraged to foster creativity and innovation.
We underpin our efforts by targeted metrics that monitor progress and assure action takes place because we have an organisational culture ‘where what gets measured gets done’.
One set of measures that we monitor is:
- The representation of women in senior leadership,
- The diversity in the ethnicity, nationality and gender of senior leadership
- Our Diversity and Inclusion Indicator, which monitors the inclusion across our work environment that comes from five questions within our annual People Survey that cover areas on respect, feeling free to speak without fear of negative consequences, valued differences, discrimination and harassment free and fair leadership.
Shell has moved beyond legislative compliance to actively seek to bring diversity into our organisation and provide an environment where diversity and inclusion can flourish to the benefit of all our stakeholders - employees, the company and society.
