Diversity and inclusion

Progress has been made in diversity at A.P. Moller - Maersk over the past decade, and the pace needs to be accelerated. To meet the challenges of the future, this change needs to be both accelerated and to move from a focus on diversity in itself to building an inclusive culture. With a new diversity and inclusion strategy approved in 2017, we will be devoting more of our resources to these dimensions going forward. We have defined leadership and local ownership, unconscious bias and inclusion capability building as well as communication as our three priorities through 2018. To support the measurement of progress in achieving our gender and nationality diversity ambitions, we have revised our targets to be more ambitious and aligned to our new organisational structure.

In 2017, 26% of our employees were comprised of women, with 23% of leaders being female. Our employees were comprised of 69% target nationalities, with 31% of leaders being of a target nationality. Target nationalities refer to non-high income OECD nationalities, and percentage are based on headcount.
