So far we have been and will continue to deliver projects and support as normal.

With around 45 per cent of Australians born overseas or with at least one parent who was, Harmony Week has since its inception been a popular way for workplaces to showcase and acknowledge their cultural diversity, and to consider and celebrate the many benefits Western Australia gains from its culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

We are very proud to have many strong and professional women in our team. We support and encourage their professional growth and offer training, industry participation beyond the four walls of our office and also flexibility in working hours to better achieve a work / life balance for those that need to control their own schedule. Equality is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue and we strive to do our bit.
