Being part of the Wesfarmers group means that diversity is in everything that we do, right from our diverse business operations through to the type of roles that we have on offer and the people we employ.

Fostering diversity within our workforce allows us to learn from each other’s differences. This means that we better understand and can more effectively engage with our customers, local communities and other stakeholders.

We have a number of innovative programs that focus on indigenous, women, disabled and youth including:

  • Region-specific Women in Leadership Plans
  • WISAU Parental Support Program to increase female labour force participation and to help all employees achieve a better work/life balance
  • Corporate, regional and business unit specific action plans to increase and promote involvement with the indigenous community and employment of indigenous people in Australia
  • Strategies and deliverables to drive an “Emerging Talent” agenda
