AWRA Lunchtime Webinar: Farstad Shipping navigates path to diversity using the DPRF

Featuring: Lucy Barker, General Manager HR (Shore-based staff)

Date and time: 12.30pm – 1.30pm | 17 February 2016

In 2013, offshore service provider Farstad Shipping became the first organisation to undertake an assessment of its gender diversity capability through the AWRA Recognised Program,which is based on the DPRF™ receiving a ‘silver stamp’ – the second rating on a four-point scale from bronze to platinum.

With a leadership team committed to implementing AWRA’s practical advice, just 12 months later Farstad was awarded a ‘gold stamp’.

Commenting on the company’s achievement, executive vice president Wayne Aitken noted: “There has been a significant  impact on organisational culture in the past 12 months including greater employee awareness and buy-in”.

This webinar will explore Farstad’s journey toward building its capability to attract and retain a diverse seafaring workforce, including the steps it took to move from an AWRA Recognised sliver to gold rating. Webinar attendees will also hear about Farstad’s Aboriginal Trainee program, which won the 2015 AMMA Indigenous Employment and Retention Award.
