United Nations Entity for Gender Equality

SMEC has partnered with the United Nations (UN) Global Compact to pledge support for the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. This program supports the advancement of equality between men and women through a range of objectives, including, modelling company behaviour to reflect the society we would like for our employees, fellow citizens and families.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Within Australia, SMEC has developed a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to formalise our support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) people. We hold ourselves accountable to the framework and are committed to strengthening our relationships with ATSI communities. Our aim is to ensure that respecting Indigenous culture is a critical part of how we do business.
