“Gender equity in engineering, what does it mean for the future of the Australian infrastructure industry”.
It is widely reported that companies with highly diverse teams are more collaborative, inventive and predominantly more commercially successful. Businesses need to be proactive in regards to diversity and take bold steps to change, in order to attract and keep talent.
