FUJIFILM is committed to improving their gender balance across the organisation. They are particularly focused on supporting women returning to or transitioning into science, technology, engineering and mathematic (STEM) careers.

FUJIFILM have focused their efforts in three areas:

  • getting support from the business for implementing the Workforce Australia - Career Revive Action Plan.

FUJIFILM have received strong executive support for the Action Plan. Actions FUJIFILM are undertaking include:

    • posting about its employee value proposition (including access to interesting work)

    • returning parents
    • parents on or embarking on leave
    • managers and team members
    • those transitioning to retirement
    • those taking extended personal leave
    • those embarking on a career break
  • HR sponsors working collaboratively with executive leaders to resource Workforce Australia - Career Revive action items.
