SAVE THE DATES FOR 2020!
Join us in celebrating and supporting women in engineering and beyond with Engineers Australia’s International Women’s Day events around Australia in March 2020!
Engineers Australia encourages industry leaders to identify, nurture and promote the talented women in their ranks; to take concrete steps to address inequality of opportunity and of pay; and to publicise the achievements of women – not just in engineering.
In 2019, over 2,300 people turned out to celebrate International Women’s Day at our SOLD OUT events and hear directly from the men and women leading the charge for a more diverse engineering profession.
In 2020, we invite you to be one of them.

Engineers Australia’s White Ribbon Accreditation
Engineers Australia believes in fair and inclusive workplaces for all.
Engineers Australia CEO, Peter McIntyre, has made diversity a priority, and is a Male Champion of Change in STEM, advocating for better gender balance within the engineering profession.
Engineers Australia has also made a number of changes to its own workplace policies and introduced a number of diversity targets.
We are now taking a further step by working towards accreditation as a White Ribbon Workplace and playing our part to drive national cultural change to prevent and respond to violence against women.
The accreditation program builds on existing gender equality and diversity initiatives, providing the tools to strengthen a culture of respect and gender equality at all levels of the organisation.
By participating in the initiative, Engineers Australia will be better equipped to support all employees in challenging inappropriate behaviour and strengthening gender equality within the broader community.
