Diversity & Inclusiveness at Shell

Shell Australia is committed to creating an inclusive working environment that respects and nurtures diversity. We acknowledge that supporting diversity in the workforce is not just socially responsible, but also makes good business sense and is a source of strength for improving our business performance.

Shell Australia’s approach to diversity and inclusion is focused on talent acquisition and retention, inclusive leadership and by differentiating our external reputation. Our leaders are role models for diversity and take accountability for delivery and for sustaining change. Shell Australia is committed to ensuring our energy portfolio is attractive to both partners and customers by nurturing a diverse workforce that reflects the diversity of our partners, customers and the countries in which we operate.

Commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

At Shell Australia, we acknowledge that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are Australia’s First Peoples and the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which we work. Shell Australia is committed to building meaningful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities based on honesty, integrity and respect.

Shell Australia Supports LGBTI via Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope is an established employee network within Shell Australia. Kaleidoscope aims to promote equality and inclusion for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersexed (LGBTI) talent wherever they work. The vision is to make Shell Australia a safe environment for talent, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Shell Australia believes it is vital that we have a strong ally support in the network, as this will greatly affect the productivity, retention, engagement, and mental health within the company.

Shell Australia Supports PWDs and Caregivers via enABLE

To support our employees with disabilities and their caregivers, we have supportive internal employee networks in place, most notably the enABLE Network.

Each enABLE Network provides people with disabilities, or people whose lives have been touched by those with disabilities, an open forum to engage and share experiences. Through this open discussion, the network raises awareness and understanding of the challenges faced so that line managers and colleagues have the knowledge to support those with disabilities to thrive in the workplace. It allows employees with disabilities the opportunity to improve the work environment to make it more inclusive for all.

At Shell, we recognise people for their talents, understanding that people with disabilities have unique strengths that we can learn from and leverage to move the company forward. We understand that innovation requires diverse perspectives and that we need different kinds of thinking to thrive as an organisation and reach our goals.
