Woodside recognises the value of diversity as a competitive advantage and strives to create a working environment where everyone feels free to bring their full selves to work every day.
In support of this objective, we established an employee network named Spectrum: a group for LGBTI+ colleagues and allies at Woodside. Spectrum's vision is to create a working environment in which people feel comfortable and supported in bringing their full selves to work every day without fear of discrimination or professional disadvantage, regardless of their sexuality, gender identity and gender expression. Formed in 2016, Spectrum has already made great strides toward building better awareness, creating peer support systems, and providing an LGBTI+ perspective to support key decisions at Woodside. Spectrum membership is open to all Woodside staff and the community enjoys full support from Woodside's senior management team.
