BHP Principal Program Delivery and Jasper Global Co-Lead, Cameron Tirendi, has won the Network Leader of the Year at the 2019 Australian LGBTI Inclusion Awards.
Jasper, our LGBT+ network, makes BHP a better place to work for all. It makes our sites and offices more inclusive workplaces by treating everyone with respect that translates into long-term improvements in both safety and productivity.
Cameron, who was one of the founding members of the Jasper network in 2017, said he was inspired to create a LGBT+ group at BHP to provide a place for people to speak up and bring their whole selves to work.
“It touches me that we are making such a real difference to people’s lives at BHP,” said Cameron.
“It provides me with a sense of purpose and will continue to work with our employees and leaders to make BHP an even more inclusive workplace.”
The Award recognises the impact of individuals within network leadership groups that perform above and beyond the expectations of the role and significantly impact LGBTI workplace inclusion as a result.
