Posted on 17 Dec 2014 by Tim Brown

ConocoPhillips, a global oil and gas company operating in Australia, was last month recognised as an ‘Employer of Choice for Gender Equality’ by the Australian Government Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA).

The WGEA announced that 76 organisations had been acknowledged, with ConocoPhillips being cited for the second consecutive time for its efforts towards achieving gender equality.

ConocoPhillips Australia-West President Todd Creeger, said: “By bringing together a variety of talents, backgrounds and experiences, we are able to promote new ideas and innovation which is critical for business success.”

“At ConocoPhillips, we are committed to ensuring that all employees have the opportunity to reach their full potential, based on our core principles of diversity, equality and inclusion,” Mr Creeger said.

Helen Conway, Director, Workplace Gender Equality Agency said the citation is a symbol of an organisation that is committed to “doing” rather than simply “talking”.

“Leading companies are increasingly realising diverse and inclusive workplaces are a baseline feature of well-managed organisations. Successful applicants for the WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation are the standouts in this area,” said Ms Conway.
