At BHP, we want to provide a safe, inclusive and supportive workplace for all. It’s part of bringing your whole self to work.
Jasper is BHP’s employee inclusion group for BHP’S lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and others (LGBT+) community and its allies.
The group’s name Jasper was inspired by the mineral jasper– known for its unique multi-coloured patterns. This characterisation reflects the rich diversity of the LGBT+ community.
Formally endorsed by the BHP Executive Leadership Team and Global Inclusion and Diversity Council in 2017, Jasper’s aim is to drive a safe and inclusive work environment for everyone by providing advice on ways to reduce bias and ensure LGBT+ people are respected and valued no matter their sexual or gender identity.
Jasper is open to all employees whether they be LGBT+ identifying or an ally.
