Wesfarmers is in a unique position to provide sustainable employment opportunities at scale to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Through a renewed focus on recruitment and retention of Indigenous people this year, we have increased the number of Indigenous team members from 1,858 people at 30 June 2020 to 2,994 as at 30 June 2021, increasing from 1.9 per cent to 2.8 per cent of our Australian workforce. 

This figure includes all full-time and part-time Indigenous team members and casual team members who have worked a shift within the 30-day period prior to reporting.  

We are on track to meet our target of employment parity of three per cent of our Australian workforce well before December 2022.
