Today’s talent is more diverse than ever before and having an inclusive work environment is key to recruiting, developing and retaining that talent.

Our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) plan in Shell, and the objectives that underpin it, aims to embed D&I in our culture; leverage D&I for business improvement, improve gender representation and equality; demonstrate leadership accountability and focus; and create an environment which positions us as an employer of choice.

We continue to focus on increasing the representation of women and local nationals in senior positions. We recognise the importance of an inclusive work environment. When employees feel included and engaged they leverage the richness of ideas, backgrounds and perspectives to create business value.

We are proud to celebrate our differences, and to foster an environment where everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential and to make the best possible contribution to Shell’s business performance.

"We need to ensure that the portfolio of our business and products is attractive to both our partners and customers. I don’t believe we can achieve this without a diverse workforce that actually reflects the diversity of our partners and customers and the countries in which we operate."
