Diversity and inclusion

Harnessing differences for a better future.

Ensuring a diverse and inclusive workforce improves staff engagement, enhances decision-making and can improve business outcomes and profitability.

At Engineers Australia we champion an engineering profession that’s as diverse as the community it serves. As the peak body for Australian engineers, we’re committed to leading the way on diversity and inclusion across the profession.

As an employer, our people are at the heart of what we do and how we do it and we’re continuing to build a culture that we can all be proud of.

We invest in diversity, inclusion and belonging and invite our people to bring their whole selves to work.
