This month we joined our colleagues and partners around the world to celebrate International Women’s Day and in particular the achievements and contributions of the many amazing women in each of our functions who bring passion, expertise and diverse thinking to our organisation, and who make what we do possible.
In this video we meet Preeti Arora, Sector Manager, Power & Energy in Victoria, Australia. Watch to find out why Preeti describes the past year as an ‘incredible experience’ and how she seeks growth in every opportunity.
SMEC teams in Brisbane, Australia joined
colleagues from our sister company Robert Bird Group to volunteer their time
painting houses in support of Kambu Progress Association, a community
organization providing housing and welfare support for local aboriginal and
islander communities in partnership with Habitat for Humanity. We are honoured to play a part in empowering
women to help families build strength, stability and independence.
SMEC staff around the world attended
industry forums and hosted events to reflect on and discuss this year’s
campaign theme, Balance for Better, which is a call to action for challenging
bias and driving greater gender balance.
SMEC is founded on diversity. Our employees
are located across over 40 countries and form the backbone and success of our
organisation. We are committed to working across all levels of our business to balance
for better, and continue building an inclusive, diverse and equitable workplace
culture at SMEC.
