Diversity and Inclusion
We celebrate and embrace diversity across our business - diversity in background, age, gender, skills, experience and thought.
We believe in the value that diversity brings to our business. Every day we work across diverse communities in Australia and New Zealand. It’s important that our workforce reflects this diversity to ensure that we understand the communities in which we operate and reflects our commitment to all our stakeholders. Diversity within our teams also ensures that we bring to the table new ideas and perspectives, harnessing the know-how of our people to get the job done.
Ventia’s Diversity Council supports our commitment to improving diversity and inclusion throughout our operations. We are an equal opportunity employer and have a zero-tolerance approach to bullying, violence, discrimination and harassment.
Through the work of the Council, we’re committed to progressing workplace gender equality across our business and providing our employees with access to the same rewards, resources and opportunities regardless of gender.
The Council also progresses our commitment to improving access to employment opportunities for Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, and Maori peoples in the locations we operate, and participating in reconciliation within our communities.
Reconcilation Action Plan
In late 2019, Ventia launched its first Reconcilation Action Plan (RAP).
Over the next 12 months, we will be focusing on increasing our cultural and historical awareness and building our relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and organisations. We will also continue to partner with our clients to ensure we’re providing opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation on individual projects.
