We are committed to creating a culture of equality across our business, where opportunities for growth, experience and career advancement is not affected by the gender that our employees identify as. We want our people to feel respected, safe and included at work and our Gender Equality Actions outlines our commitment through:
Challenging gender stereotypes to promote equality. For example, our Parental Leave Policy is inclusive of all genders and we encourage gender neutral parental care, men’s participation in caring, and recognise a broad definition of families.
Strengthening positive and equal relationships through supporting employees affected by domestic and family violence
Championing equal opportunities at work by educating our leaders about inclusive decision-making, pay equity analysis, and monitoring gender equality in leadership.
Listening to our people to understand their experiences through Respect@Thales initiatives, Employee Resource Group activities and by analysing data from our engagement survey.
WGEA Compliance: Every year Thales submits Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) report. The WGEA is an Australian Government statutory agency created by the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012. The Agency is charged with promoting and improving gender equality in Australian workplaces.
Additionally, Thales is endorsed by WORK180 as a workplace committed to equity and inclusion, promoting flexible work arrangements, shared caring responsibilities and career development.
