See how Bechtel have educated their leaders.

Top Tips from Bechtel

  • Ensure your leaders understand and articulate the business case for recruiting, retaining and progressing more women.
  • Make senior leaders accountable for key performance indicators on diversity and inclusion and give all managers relevant performance targets.
  • Communicate from the top down, with regular updates and promotion of success stories.
  • Train all your managers in unconscious bias.
  • Get leaders to act as sponsors and role models in order to inspire people and drive change. Don’t just leave it to HR.

“This could be seen as just a ‘nice thing to do’, but it’s been recognised as a business imperative, which drives higher performance. That’s why it’s being rolled out from the top down.”

Camilla Barrow, Bechtel deputy project manager on Crossrail project
