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.
