Shell Australia’s LGBTI+ Employee Network Kaleidoscope
Shell LGBTI+ Networks have been set up as a supportive space for LGBTI+ colleagues to find confidence in being themselves at work. They aim to raise awareness of the challenges that LGBTI+ staff face, working with people at all levels of the organisation to ensure an inclusive workplace.
Kaleidoscope enables an inclusive work environment where all employees, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity, are given equal opportunity to reach their full potential.
The network holds a number of education sessions, events, networking and other opportunities for all staff across Shell Australia.
“At Shell I feel energised by the appetite for both education about, and celebration of, different kinds of diversity.”James Fowler, founder of Shell's Kaleidoscope network.
“Being a part Kaleidoscope means being connected to people that value and support diversity and inclusion in the workplace.”Grant Bevan, LGBTI+ workplace ally.
"I have found myself more productive and engaged, knowing that I work for a company who promotes diversity and inclusion in the workplace."Jane Zerbst, Kaleidoscope committee member.
