Gender Diversity

At WSP we are committed to improving gender diversity at our firm and acknowledge that we, and our industry, have a long way to go.

Our focus on achieving an increased gender balance in our workforce is shared by many of our clients who also seek equal opportunities for women and men.

Here are some comments about gender balance from our President & CEO, ANZ, Guy Templeton.

Current Programs

Our current gender diversity programs include:

  • Parental leave entitlements for Australia and New Zealand.
  • Flexible working options.
  • Membership at the Diversity Council of Australia.
  • Involvement in gender diversity advocacy programs with industry associations such as Consult Australia, Engineers Australia, Engineers New Zealand, Property Council of Australia, Property Council of New Zealand and The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC).
  • WSP Women in Engineering' scholarships at the University of Queensland ($8,000) and University of New South Wales ($10,000).
  • Support and encouragement to participate in leading industry award programs such as the NAWIC Awards.
  • Our current review of salaries to bridge the remaining gap between men and women, and our commitment to ensure that new employees are paid equally, regardless of gender.
