International Women’s Day, 8 March 2021
NDY is committed to challenging and calling out gender bias, discrimination and stereotyping alongside developing inclusive behaviours. We believe that we all have a role in achieving gender parity, so we proactively #ChooseToChallenge in order to encourage change.
To mark IWD 2021 our Sydney and Melbourne teams hosted unique hybrid event on Thursday 4 March 2021, celebrating the official 2021 IWD theme of #ChooseToChallenge whilst exploring how Australia is Bringing our Cities Back to Life following the challenges associated with the global pandemic. Importantly, we heard from the women who are playing an integral role in leading this process including the Lord Mayor of Melbourne, Sally Capp; Government Architect of NSW, Abbie Galvin; Dean Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, University of Melbourne, Professor Julie Willis; and NDY Senior Engineer and 2020 David Norman Young Engineer of the Year Melanie Finch.
