Operations comprises Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Legal and Compliance. These teams are responsible for the administration of best practice processes across our global initiatives to ensure Minderoo Foundation runs as efficiently and effectively as possible. Without these important powerhouses, the Minderoo change-machine would shudder to a halt.
The Minderoo Foundation Board together with the Executive Team is responsible for the corporate governance of the Minderoo Foundation Trust (ABN 24 819 440 618) and the Minderoo Foundation Trust as the Operator of a PBI (ABN 47 204 978 079) which are both DGR endorsed entities.
The Board comprises seven directors and two alternate directors as listed below:
The Foundation is governed by a Trust Deed and registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission Act 2012. The audited special purpose financial report can be accessed from the following annual report link.
Minderoo Foundation is committed to increasing female employment in our workforce. Four members of our nine-person Board of Directors are women. Of the senior leadership group responsible for the Foundation’s operations, five out of eight positions are held by females. A staggering 71 per cent of all Minderoo Foundation employees were female as at 30 June 2018.
Minderoo Foundation is focused on creating a positive working environment, with an emphasis on retention and professional growth. Given the challenges associated with retaining key female talent, Minderoo is committed to facilitating flexible working locations and hours, staggered return to work programs following parental leave and broad professional development opportunities.
Minderoo Foundation is committed to respecting and upholding the human rights of every employee and also those working within our supply chain.
Minderoo Foundation adopts a partnership-based approach with suppliers to support, train and have ongoing, honest conversations about the risks within their own operations and supply chains.
Minderoo doesn’t have a “zero tolerance” for identifying risks or cases of slavery, we instead have a “zero tolerance” for inaction should our partners identify risks and vulnerabilities within their supply chain.
