Fonterra has updated its earnings guidance for the 2022 financial year that ended on 31 July 2022, indicating that earnings will be towards the top end of its current guidance of 25 – 35 cents per share.
The event, a panel discussion on the topic of “breaking the bias” caused a storm on Twitter last night after it was discovered the event would feature three male speakers and no women.
In a statement provided to Dairy News, Fonterra managing director People & Culture Kate Daly says the co-operative recognises that it did not get the event right.
“We have reviewed the panel and changed it to two women and one man.
“It’s important that we have both men and women talking about gender diversity so that we can all work together to overcome gender bias in the workplace,” Daly says.
“This is one of many events we have lined up for International Women’s Day. We are committed as a business to improving gender diversity and breaking down barriers that exist for women.”
