Our commitment to diversity has been strengthened by providing workstations and IT facilities free of charge to the Diversity Council of Australia (DCA) in our Sydney and Melbourne offices. DCA is an independent, not-for-profit diversity adviser to businesses in Australia. This arrangement provides us with the opportunity to collaborate with the DCA on ways that we can enhance diversity within our workplace. Other organisations we partner with to assist in achieving our diversity objectives include: Women on Boards, National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), the NSW Equal Employment Opportunity Practitioners' Association (NEEOPA) and the Australian Network on Disability.
