Tis the season to be diverse and inclusive! WSP’s engineeredOURway program will be taking a well-earned break from this week onwards.

Here we share our most viewed profiles of 2018 as we all take some time to recharge and look to the future. #engineeredOURway will take on a new look for 2019 so until then, Season’s Greetings and best wishes for the new year.

  

Meet Our Agents of Change

CHARLIE JEWKES

Director of Transport

“Gender balance presents us with the opportunity to enrich our firm. It’s time to get serious about our actions. It’s up to each and every one of us to engage with our teams, colleagues and clients on the issue and transform the issue from a challenge to an opportunity, and ultimately a positive outcome.”

Jenny McMahon

Director of Environment

“We need to increase the visibility of women in technical fields… My advice is to have 10 seconds of courage and go for it! Think about your skills and areas of competencies and extend yourself.”

Paul Williams

Director of Power

“Involving men and women as active and equal partners to be change agents is key to getting the foundation right for improving gender equality… At the end of the day, gender balance is about creating a flexible, open and nurturing environment where all people thrive irrespective of whether you are a man or a woman. It’s about being human-centred, pure and simple.”

Cindy Williams

Regional Director, ACT

“Gender balance to me is about treating everyone the same regardless of your age, sex, sexuality or race… Our LGBTIQ policy also makes a huge difference to my family. The firm-wide email that was distributed during the referendum on the Equal rights vote was encouraging. It allowed me to feel safe and valued as a member of the WSP community.”
