Include to transform

Vale is undergoing a cultural transformation that will require contributions from a variety of perspectives, experiences, and repertoires. This journey will only be possible if we combine our efforts with a wide range of talents.

We believe that expanding diversity and promoting inclusion are ethical imperatives essential to a sustainable and people-oriented organization. We strive to be a company that is increasingly inclusive, with transparent, open dialogue, in which people are respected and can take pride in being who they are. A place for all!

Double representation of women in the next 10 years and reach a mark of 20% of women in senior leadership positions globally.


Increase awareness of LGBTQIA+ themes and our company's position of respect for sexual orientation regardless of personal values and beliefs.


Increase the representation of Black collaborators in the company and in leadership positions, taking the context in Brazil and the remaining countries in which we operate into consideration. Understanding different realities will allow us to find sustainable solutions.

People With Disability

Analyze the current level of inclusion for our employees with disabilities, assess their work conditions and implement initiatives that increase accessibility and enhance the productive and creative capacity of these professionals, creating positive experiences and raising the level of inclusion.

Local talents

Continuously enhance visibility, development, and growth of talents in regions and countries less represented among company leadership positions.


Increase awareness and employee engagement to foster a safe environment in which everyone has a voice (psychological security) and opportunities for developing their potential.

Affinity Groups

We believe in the importance of debate, in the sharing of information and ideas. For this reason, affinity groups, formed voluntarily by employees, were created to support the common causes and objectives connected to Vale's positioning on Inclusion and Diversity.

Ethno-Racial Equality



Our objective is to connect women to inspire, develop and support one another in the challenges and dilemmas faced during our professional journey. We promote different internal actions creating spaces for dialogue, raising leadership awareness, and reflecting on unconscious biases, thereby contributing to the company's cultural transformation.

Flavia Souza, Women's Affinity Group

Diversity and inclusion are not a point of arrival, but a constant path that must be walked; we've started our journey towards a more inclusive environment and the creation of the Ethno-Racial Equality Affinity Group was a very important step. But for this group to be successful, it is essential that we unite in a single effort to make our voice echo throughout the entire company, Brazil and the world. To become a single voice consolidating ethnic and racial equality.

Carolina Nascimento,
Ethno-Racial Equality Affinity Group

Valuing diversity and inclusion is bringing about real change. Vale is working on the pillar of education, its targets and enhancing the consequence management system. The company places people at the centre of decisions and discourse and this was fundamental. We now have a voice through the affinity groups that allows us to bring harmony to HR's decisions.

Mining By Women

Hear the stories of women that help to build a better Vale each day in Brazil and the countries in which we operate. The Mining By Women web series shows their trajectories, routines and challenges to represent the women that work in Vale's diverse departments. Our characters open up new paths and inspire more and more women to build a career in mining, a predominantly male sector, to reinforce the fact that a woman's place is any place.
