Make the Future

#MakeTheFuture gender balanced

For any business the best results are achieved by providing opportunities for all. Shell recognises this and actively supports gender balance. We run leadership workshops designed specifically for women. We offer a global minimum standard for maternity leave as well as flexible working arrangements. And through long-term partnerships with universities and research centres, we help women gain exposure to areas where they are underrepresented, like science, technology, and engineering.

In the last six years, Shell has increased female representation on our Board of Directors from 25% to 46%.
