Progress 2020: Diversity and Inclusion
We aspire to create an inclusive culture where employees from every background can contribute to their fullest. In doing this, we will be in a prime position to attract people from the widest talent pool, specifically increasing the gender and nationality diversity at our senior levels.
Social issues based movements are rising in importance across the world and our global presence means that we are affected by events and movements regardless of where they take place. They impact us to take specific actions as well as providing input to A.P. Moller - Maersk’s continued, global conversation on diversity and inclusion.
We have clear policies in place stating that we do not accept discrimination, and we have a whistleblower system with a range of options for our employees to communicate grievances.
Our initiatives on diversity and inclusion support our drive towards targets on gender and nationality representation in management. Our key approach is employee engagement and capability building, and we work on creating awareness of unconscious bias and related effects, establishing inclusion networks covering our global organisation, and more recently on creating psychologically safe teams and cultures.
