National Association for Women in Construction (NAWIC) – South Australia
– Winner: NAWIC SA Crystal Vision Award
Aurecon won the NAWIC Crystal Vision Award for advancing careers of women in the construction industry.
Whilst awarded in South Australia, Aurecon's submission was reflective of our gender equality effort across Australia. NAWIC identified Aurecon's Shared Care, Yes Flex, Pay Equality and Ascend initiatives as stand outs in the industry.
"Whilst we’re seeing a steady improvement in female retention, reducing the rate of female talent exiting the business remains a priority. Another focus is 'you can't be what you can't see' and I’m proud to have balanced female representation on the South Australia/Victoria Leadership Team. I’m personally committed to gender equality; to the benefits it brings to our innovation strategy, and personally committed to role modelling flexible working." Louise Adams, Regional Director – Victoria & South Australia
