Earlier this month the Fujitsu offices across Australia and New Zealand celebrated International Women’s Day (IWD) – a day to acknowledge women for their achievements without regard to divisions; whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political.

What better way to recognise International Women’s Day than to profile our very own women of Fujitsu? Thanks to Helen Howard, Megan Keleher, Blaise Porter, Sarah Retter and Chiara Charlton who shared their thoughts on gender diversity in the workplace, drawing on their personal experiences.

Fujitsu Australia recently marked an important step in its ongoing commitment to equity for Australian Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander people with the launch of its Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
The RAP is Fujitsu Australia’s 12 month plan to create sustainable opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander focusing on four key areas; relationships, respect, opportunities, tracking and progress.
The RAP seeks to:
- Implement initiatives to assist the employment and opportunities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
- Increase Fujitsu Australia’s employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and Fujitsu’s use of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander suppliers in their supply chains, in the delivery of services; and
- Improve the relationship, understanding and respect of Fujitsu Australia’s employees with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
Fujitsu Australia’s CEO Mike Foster hailed the launch of the RAP as an important milestone in Fujitsu’s diversity journey; “The ICT industry at large has been challenged by concerns around diversity and inclusion for some time. Fujitsu has taken a determined approach in acknowledging and adopting a series of initiatives to address these challenges within our industry. This Reconciliation Action Plan is a further commitment by Fujitsu to drive change not only within our own organisation, but within society.”
