  1. What is your name and occupation in the company?
    My name is Khadija Maroc and I work as an HR assistant at BP’s Belgium office.

  2. How long have you worked in the company?
    I started three months ago.
  3. What were your expectations first day you started the job vs what are your expectations now?
    So far, my expectations have been met. My previous work experience was in the IT branch, so I had/have to learn a lot about the current market. However, with hard work and dedication, I was able to adapt to the new environment.

    My current expectations are to continue learning and growing in my job.

  4. Onboarding process
    The onboarding process was very clear and the HR team was very supportive with any questions I had.

  5. Linkedin learning platform
    I’m also happy about the opportunities to learn more; I believe education is never enough. The speakers have been very motivational and engaging, which keeps me focused.

  6. What do your daily tasks look like?
    Every day, I come to the office and work on various requests such as assisting HR manager, Letitia Apostu and the Country manager, Dave Van Roeyen. As well serving the entire office team.

  7. How would you describe the company culture?
    I feel like we are operating in a great teamwork environment that is very inclusive and welcoming.

  8. What is your definition of inclusion and diversity? What does it mean to you?
    To me, inclusion means that employees should feel heard, safe and welcome. Diversity is just as important, given that BP is an international company with a mix of different people, religions and skin colours.

  9. What is the organization’s status in terms of diversity and inclusion? How divers and inclusive do you feel that Blue Projects is?
    The above answer that I have given, that is what I feel at BP. For example, I’m glad that I have never faced any issues with my religious belief and dress code (Hijab) as that is a testament to BP’s acceptance of diversity.

  10. Where have you experienced the most resistance to D&I? How did you and your team respond?
    Fortunately, I haven’t faced any resistance to diversity and inclusion policies, and I hope it stays that way.

  11. What is the best thing about working here?
    I feel appreciated by the colleagues and I’m grateful for their support. I’m excited about the learning opportunities that come with the job and I hope to work at BP for many years to come.
