Kellogg Australia is one of the latest companies to be awarded Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation from Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA), recognising the company as one that represents both women and men equally in the workplace.
Managing director at Kellogg’s ANZ, Esme Borgelt (main photo), said:“Receiving this recognition from WGEA is an overwhelming recognition for Kellogg, and one that we’re incredibly proud to accept. It’s been proven time and time again that groups with diverse perspectives and flexibility in thinking almost always outperform groups with less diversity, leading to higher levels of creativity, innovation and organisational agility – which is why we’re committed to building our diverse teams across the business.
“I’m extremely proud to work for a company whose founder was a pioneer in employing women in the workplace since 1906. The push for a more diverse and inclusive workforce at Kellogg not only makes business sense, it is part of our company commitment to living our founder’s values. Diversity in the workplace is and will always remain a top priority for our business, globally.”
Kellogg continues to invest in their strong pipeline of female talent and develop their future female leaders. Currently, 45 per cent of Kellogg’s Australian senior positions are held by women, with the recent appointment of their first female plant director to run the Australian manufacturing plant – a milestone in the company’s local history.
“We’ve been on a journey the last 18 months strengthening our policies around flexible working, parental leave and domestic violence.”
The EOCGE citation is the WGEA’s leading practice recognition program. The citation aims to promote and improve gender equality for women and men, while acknowledging the historically disadvantaged position of women in the workplace. A voluntary program, this citation is open to all compliant employers covered under the WGEA Act.
