40:40 Vision

40:40 Vision is an investor-led initiative to achieve gender balance in the executive leadership across Australia’s largest listed companies.

40:40 Vision seeks to achieve gender balance – 40 per cent women, 40 per cent men and 20 per cent any gender – across the senior leadership of all ASX200 companies by 2030.

Ramsay Health Care has joined to reflect our commitment to gender equality.

Sustainable Development Goals

Ramsay Health Care supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aim to promote peace and prosperity, while protecting our planet into the future.

The 17 goals are a call to action to achieve economic growth and address a range of social issues to end poverty. These include education, health, social protection and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

We are committed to driving action on the relevant goals which underpin our Ramsay Cares approach.

Ramsay is determined to provide a caring and inclusive culture where staff can develop and feel empowered. By supporting 40:40 Vision, we hope to encourage other ASX200 companies to achieve gender equality, just as we have.
