BHP looks to women and science in leadership shuffleND

Luke Housego, Australian Financial Review, Thursday 28th February 2019

BHP has reshuffled its executive leadership team to include three more women and added roles focused on science and technology, a move the miner says will help position the business for the future. Geraldine Slattery, Laura Tyler, Vandita Pant and Jonathan Price were named on Thursday as incoming executives, taking female representation on the executive close to 50 per cent. The new roles are chief transformation officer and chief geoscientist. In a statement, BHP chief executive Andrew Mackenzie said science and technology would become a greater focus for management. "These management changes are an important step as we plan for the future of BHP. The elevation of geoscience and transformation to the executive leadership team demonstrates the determination we have to advance the best science, technology and people to make our operations safer and more productive," he said. The addition of three women to the executive leadership team pushes the company towards a 2016 target to have women make up half its workforce within nine years.
