Diversity and inclusion at bp

For me, it's very, very simple. People are treated with respect, people should absolutely feel safe – we shouldn't even have to question that. And, if ever we find people who are not supportive or aligned with that agenda, then they don't belong in our company.Bernard LooneyCEO

We are a global business and as such it is paramount to us that the differences we see in the world around us are reflected in our workplace. To achieve this, we are building a diverse workforce by consciously attracting the best people to bp.


But this alone is not enough. For a diverse workforce to really thrive, we need inclusion, having a culture where everyone is valued and plays their part in building the success of our business. If we have an inclusive culture, this will help us attract the most diverse employee base.


A core element in achieving this is our bp employee networks, voluntarily set up by employees for employees. Their goal is to support bp's diversity and inclusion ambition, by creating an inclusive place to work, and helping to foster, develop and retain a diverse employee base at bp.
