NDY has again been named an employer of choice for gender equality by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency for its visible commitment to this important cause and progress achieved over the past two years. As one of only 120 employers across Australia to receive this recognition, NDY is proud to have achieved this level of recognition since 2018.
To obtain the highly coveted acknowledgement, NDY met all criteria set out by WGEA across seven focus areas, including developing a gender-balanced workforce, mainstreaming flexible work, leadership, strategy and accountability, support for carers and gender pay equity.
Engineering is one of the most gender-imbalanced industries in Australia, so NDY is keenly aware of the unique challenges facing engineers around gender equality. We are committed to creating opportunities to shift the dial for the benefit of current and future generations.
NDY’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Strategy continues to support gender equality and ongoing investment in the attraction, retention and engagement of female talent as a key priority area. We have taken tangible action to improve gender representation in both the workforce and leadership, through initiatives such as setting clear targets for gender balance and pay parity and tracking our performance against key gender metrics each year.
Most importantly, we are committed to influencing and encouraging all within our industry to continuously improve their diversity, equity and inclusion policies and practices.
