Diversity is a collection of individual attributes that can include demographic diversity, cognitive diversity, personal and professional background and lived experience.
Diversity comes in all shapes and forms. We welcome all dimensions of diversity. Everyone is unique, and at Aurecon, we respect that difference and value each person for their uniqueness. Our differences are our strength.
We believe innovation is essential to building an organisation ready to capture the future; and to thrive, a culture of innovation needs both demographic diversity, and diversity of thought.
We have built our diversity and inclusion commitments on a foundation of integrity, equality, and respect for people. Without our people, our Blueprint strategy is simply words on a page. By living and applying the Aurecon Attributes and Aurecon Principles in the way we work, we create an environment where our people are as diverse as the clients and communities we serve and where they can do their best work and flourish.
We have interventions in place to disrupt systemic bias and to create equitable access to opportunities to ensure equality of outcomes for everyone. Our initiatives and policies support our culture through:
- The principles of equal opportunity employment
- Fair and equal treatment for all employees
- Providing a fair and safe workspace
In Asia, Aurecon has implemented a programme aimed at building the diversity and inclusion culture through education, training and featuring stories of various individuals on internal platforms; and at achieving a fair representation across gender and ethnicity in the workforce across all Asia offices through recruitment, promotion and mentoring programmes.
To date, Asia has a healthy representation of its workforce across age groups and has a larger female population contributing to the Aurecon Asia business.
