At Sydney Motorway Corporation, we advocate diversity and inclusivity.
Our people come from a range of backgrounds and bring a diverse range of skills and experience to our business.
Women represent 43 per cent of our workforce and we enthusiastically support initiatives which encourage their participation and advancement in engineering. This includes:
- partnering with Engineers Australia and the Experience It! student conference to provide high school girls with the opportunity to experience the many facets of engineering
- hosting Women in Transport networking events, encouraging women to consider opportunities within the transport industry.
We are committed to furthering reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by developing lasting relationships, respect and opportunities. In 2017, we developed a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to formalise our approach which was subsequently endorsed by Reconciliation Australia.
Our RAP is part of Sydney Motorway Corporation’s broader strategy for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander investment in communities we are working in.
All our employees and contractors attend cultural awareness training, to improve their understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture.
We also participate in the Career Trackers and Career Seekers programs, which secure corporate internships for Aboriginal and refugee university students over the summer university break.
