Gender Equality at GHD
GHD's pursuit of gender equity in a traditionally male majority industry began in 2014 when female employee targets were first set in Australia.
- GHD is committed to achieving pay equity – this is central to their reward culture. GHD has tools that help them assess and maintain pay equity: the GHD People System, market-based salary ranges and their core job architecture framework. GHD also conducts annual gender pay equity reviews and completed their first ethnicity pay equity review in 2021.
- GHD's Women in GHD (WiNG) group was established in 2007, in Australia, to provide a platform for our women to feel empowered and to network. Today, WinG is active globally, running local initiatives and events, providing a platform for our women to connect, inspire, grow and lead all of our people to foster a culture of gender equality inclusion.
- GHD partnered with Future Women’s Jobs Academy program for 2022 to help women who are unemployed, underemployed or looking for a career change.
- To help more of their women feel supported to breastfeed or express milk during working hours, in 2021 GHD received the Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace Accreditation from the Australian Breastfeeding Association,
