Maersk Drilling is a truly global company with operations all around the world, and over 60 nationalities represented in our workforce. In the oil and gas industry, gender diversity is a challenge and women continue to be underrepresented. Maersk Drilling aims to improve the female leadership pipeline to further increase gender diversity.
Committing to diversity targets
Maersk Drilling is pursuing a significant leap forward on gender diversity to increase female representation on all onshore leadership levels through a female leadership target of 30% across leadership levels, 25% for senior leaders, and 20% for the Executive Leadership Team by end-year 2023.
In 2019, Maersk Drilling set a board diversity target to elect two female board members no later than the Annual General Meeting in 2022. This target was reached in April 2020.
"Given the nature of our industry, gender diversity in particular is difficult. I am proud that Maersk Drilling is stepping up to this challenge and ready to fight for more equality and diversity, by committing to a female leadership target."Nikolaj Svane
