Key people metrics in 2018



We recognize the importance of equitable gender representation for Board and executive roles. In 2018, the Board approved an amendment to the Diversity Policy addressing gender diversity, which introduces a candidate selection step into our recruitment process for Board and executive positions. The candidate selection step requires reasonable efforts to ensure at least 50% of applicants are women. Our intent is to broaden each search process to ensure qualified candidates of both genders are available for consideration. For senior leadership roles, we will continue to develop our mentoring pilot program, with a focus on identifying high potential female employees, developing their management skills and preparing them for senior leadership roles in the future, by matching participants with members of the Vermilion Management Team (Executives and Direct Reports of Executives).


Increasing diversity in leadership will be managed over time and in line with market.  We anticipate an implementation period of five years given our internal talent pipeline for executive positions as our preferred source, and market availability for Board and executive positions. Accordingly, the current Board Diversity Policy does not include a formal target to be achieved by a specified date for the gender composition of the Board or executive officers.


Two out of 10 (20%) Directors on our Board are female and one out of four (25%) of our senior management team is female. In 2018, 16% of leadership roles at Vermilion were held by women.
