They are involved in several initiatives to drive equality across Australasia:
The Diversity Agenda in New Zealand
Beca is a Founding Partner of the Diversity Agenda – an industry-wide campaign that is galvanising scores of Kiwi companies around one common goal: 20 percent more women engineers and architects by 2021.
Beca’s Managing Director – New Zealand, Darryl-Lee Wendelborn, says she believes it’s critically important for leaders in the industry to collectively commit to the campaign for change.
There are so many good reasons to change the status quo. We want a more gender-balanced workforce and greater diversity of thought… Research shows us that companies with more women are 15 percent more likely to financially outperform in their industry, and companies with women on their boards are 26 percent more profitable than those with all male boards – stats like that should be a real rallying cry for us all.
Reconciliation Action Plan in Australia
Early this year, Beca launched their first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). The ‘Reflect’ RAP, endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, is the first step of their journey to bridge the gap with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples at work and in society.
Male Champion of Change Initiative
Beca’s Managing Director – Australia, Craig Lee is a Male Champion of Change, one of many influential leaders that is redefining men’s role in taking action on gender inequality:
Increasing diversity in the workplace is not just the problem of the under-represented to solve. If we’re going to see real change, and diversity of thought and innovation in the workplace, the over-represented need to stand up and get behind the cause to champion this change… I’m proud to represent Beca as we work to bring about meaningful diversity and equity in our sector.
