In the US, bp’s DE&I work is guided by our Framework for Action and its three principles:

  • Transparency, rooted in data and made public to drive progress
  • Accountability, from education and metrics embedded in our daily operations and our reward structures
  • Talent, recruited from diverse candidate pools and nurtured for success.
Dave Lawler
“Our continuing goal is to foster an environment where all employees can reach their full potential and improve the advancement of African Americans and other underrepresented minorities. This framework will help overcome our biggest employment progression and retention challenges, and we’ll continue using it to make other improvements as needed.” 


Dave Lawler, chairman and president, bp America
