WSP is making great strides in becoming a more diverse and inclusive organisation with inclusive policies and measurable outcomes. Its D&I Advisory Group advocates for our people, holds the business to its D&I Action Plan delivery, and champions change through sharing experiences and growing awareness.
WSP recognises the need to continue to support women and other minority genders in the engineering and built environment industry, which is why gender is one of its Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) Strategy pillars. WSP do this by supporting its people throughout their careers, addressing pay parity issues, actively dismantling barriers to equality, and encouraging increased gender diversity in STEM.
WSP supports employment opportunities and initiatives for Māori and Pacific through building effective partnerships with Iwi/Māori and Pacific directly and supporting the pipeline for future employees, promotion, and retention.
WSP believe that inclusion brings its work to the next level. That’s why WSP actively works to have a culture where its people can bring their whole selves to work and feel valued - irrespective of their sexuality, gender identity or intersex status.
WSP is committed to building an inclusive culture that respects and maximizes the contribution of all its employees.
WSP is a founding member of the Diversity Agenda, which strives to have 20% more women in engineering and architecture roles by 2021. WSP has also been awarded Rainbow Tick accreditation, which the organisation views as an ongoing and continual commitment to improving the workplace.
