We are committed to making equity, diversity and inclusion a business-wide priority. These new targets and actionable commitments are part of our expanded ED&I strategy, and are built from four pillars: Systems, Talent, Culture, and Society.
Our equity, diversity & inclusion targets and commitments
Integrate equity, diversity and inclusion into core organisational structure, policies and practices to promote equitable advancement, retention and reward:
