BlueScope is commited to supporting and promoting Diversity and, in a first, has partnered with the Australian Institute of Sport.
BlueScope’s success is built on People. “We believe we will be even more successful as our workplace respects and encourages diversity of opinion, background, education, cultural experience and attitudes. Embracing the power of difference that everyone brings is key in helping us innovate and create value in a challenging and dynamic business environment.”
The journey to Diversity remains challenging with women making up just 16.6% of BlueScope’s global workforce. Maintaining focus on this in a volatile business environment with competing priorities creates challenges. To this end, BlueScope has partnered their leaders with olympic athletes from the AIS.
Join us to share insights, learnings and strategies from this unique programme and hear how you can challenge yourself to be motivated and stay resilient in your own career!
