Key people metrics in 2020


We recognize the importance of gender diversity. In April 2021, the Board Diversity Policy was amended to include a clear commitment to increase Board gender diversity to 30% by the 2024 annual general meeting. We achieved this target in July 2021, with four female Directors out of 10 (40%). Our formal recruitment process for the Board and Executive Officer vacant positions includes a candidate screening step that includes reasonable efforts to secure at least 50% of qualifed women applicants and the interview pool for every Board and Executive Officer position available. 102-24 In 2021, Vermilion was also accepted as a member of the 30% Club, joining their campaign to increase gender diversity on boards. Increasing diversity in leadership will be managed over time and in line with market.

We also plan to continue a mentoring program, focused on helping high-potential female employees develop their management skills and prepare for senior leadership roles. Given the positive feedback from mentors and mentees, this program will be expanded to additional participants in 2021. In 2020, 17% of leadership roles at Vermilion were held by women.
