Our people

People are central to our business and we work to ensure employees feel valued and engaged. Effective talent management is key to our competitiveness and remains a critical focus.

Measures are in place to build the requisite skills to deliver on our strategy. Learning and development initiatives are based on the need for the development of near-term critical skills and long-term organisational capabilities.

Policies and standards

Diversity and inclusion

AngloGold Ashanti’s aim is to create, nurture and support a diverse and inclusive workforce that is aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC).

We do this by:

  • Ensuring that our leadership teams takes full ownership of our approach to diversity and inclusion and their outputs
  • Establishing clearly defined priorities and actions for the next two to five years, with associated implementation guidelines, to ensure that our diversity and inclusion objectives are entrenched in our business processes

As an organisation, we endeavour to grant equal representation to our diverse global footprint, to listen to and understand the needs of our many different stakeholders, and to acknowledge and address the challenges faced by our industry and business. To this end, we are guided by our Global Transformation Policy and our Global Diversity and Inclusion Framework.

AngloGold Ashanti’s Social, Ethics and Sustainability subcommittee of the Board sponsors the company’s diversity and inclusion initiatives.
