Perenti committed to achieve gender balance in signing up to 40:40 Vision

In celebration of International Women’s Day 2023 and the focus on #embracingequity, we are pleased to announce Perenti has signed up to the 40:40 Vision, and in doing so, we have committed to achieve gender balance in our Board and executive leadership by 2030.

Perenti’s commitment to 40:40 is a pledge to have Board and Executive representation of 40 per cent women and 40 per cent men by 2030 with 20 per cent any gender.

Managing Director & CEO Mark Norwell said Perenti had joined other listed companies in signing up its support for industry super fund HESTA’s 40:40 Vision.

“Perenti recognises the business and social importance of achieving gender diversity. Participating in the 40:40 Vision is a way of furthering this commitment and ensuring we hold ourselves accountable to these targets and are transparent about our progress.

“A key finding of our It’s Not OK program, which aims to eliminate harmful behaviour in our workplace, is that in order to build a safe, diverse and inclusive workforce where people are respected for who they are, we must improve female participation across the business at an accelerated rate.

“There is clear evidence that gender balance in leadership is not only fairer, but also very positive for overall business performance.”
