The Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) is an Australian Government statutory agency created by the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012. The Agency is charged with promoting and improving gender equality in Australian workplaces.
In 2016, WGEA granted Aurecon an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation.
Successful firms in the future will be those able to harness the creativity of a diverse workforce.
"It’s diversity of thought that drives innovation. Since 2014, Aurecon has focused on driving culture change and putting programmes in place to facilitate the business becoming an employer of choice for women across the industry. To take the journey to the point where we’re recognised through this WGEA citation required commitment, self-examination and an understanding what we needed to change."
