In his own words...

Why commit to more women in the workplace? 

Women bring a unique perspective and way of thinking to the workplace. They bring different life experience, difference values and unique approaches to solving problems. The combination of men and women working side-by-side in our workplace gives us more robust teams and more thoughtful decision making.


In this respect, I think it is critical that we engage and support talented women so that they can make the most of their true potential. Often, our systems, processes, and way of working in resources are not supporting women to use these skills to their full advantage.


As a male leader in the resources industry, I am committed to removing the barriers that prevent women from reaching their full potential. I am in a privileged position to be able to influence this change, and I want to use this position to help those who are less privileged. T


his is not a 'women’s problem' – it is one we must tackle together to drive sustainable change.
