Mount Burgess Mining and its subsidiaries have always been committed to workplace diversity.
It is an equal opportunity employer and recognises the benefits arising from workplace diversity throughout its workforce.
By being committed to workplace diversity the Company has always had the benefit of a larger choice of high quality employees and access to different perspectives and ideas.
Diversity includes, but is not limited to, gender, age, ethnicity and cultural background.
To the extent practicable, the Company in its current phase of development addresses the recommendations and guidance provided in the ASX Corporate Governance Council's Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations (ASX Principles).
This Diversity Policy does not form part of an employee's contract of employment with Mount Burgess Mining or its subsidiaries, nor gives rise to contractual obligations.
The Diversity Policy provides a framework for the Company to achieve:
- (a) a diverse and skilled workforce
- (b) a workplace culture that recognises and respects the unique attributes of each individual in the workplace;
- (c) improved employment and career development opportunities for women;
- (d) Recognition of an individual’s domestic responsibilities or cultural/religious obligations;
- (e) awareness in all staff of their rights and responsibilities with regards to fairness, equity and respect for all aspects of diversity,
This Diversity Policy does not impose on the Company, its directors, officers, agents or employee any obligation to engage in, or justification for engaging in, any conduct which is illegal or contrary to any anti-discrimination or equal employment opportunity legislation or laws in Australia or of any foreign jurisdiction.
The Company’s Board is committed to workplace diversity, with a particular focus on supporting the representation of women at the senior level of the Company and on the Company Board.
The Board believes that at this stage in its development it is not of sufficient size to justify the development and monitoring of measurable objectives and strategies of its Diversity Policy (Point 3.3 of the ASX Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations).
