AXIS Network Aberdeen is pleased to launch its Inclusive Offshore Working Guidelines, produced in partnership with Step Change in Safety.
Sarah Clark, Project Lead, said: “While our industry has taken big steps to improve gender balance, this hasn't yet translated offshore, with women only making up 3% of the workforce. Some of this is due to the talent pipeline, but we understood from our members that it is also to do with the perception that the working environment is not welcoming. With the industry embarking on the energy transition, employers must be attractive to future talent, and that requires a different, more inclusive approach. We can benefit from a wider range of experience and viewpoints by expanding our workforce to be representative."
