Commitment to equity, affirmative action, and recruit-ability

At CDM Smith Australia, we firmly believe in fostering an inclusive and diverse workplace that celebrates the unique contri­bu­tions of every individual. Our commitment extends across all aspects of our organ­i­sa­tion, from recruitment to career development.

  1. Equity and Inclusion:
    • We are dedicated to creating an environment where everyone feels valued, respected, and empowered. We actively promote equity by eliminating barriers and biases that may hinder any individual’s progress.
    • Our commitment to inclusion means that whoever you are, and whatever path you’ve taken to get here, we value you. Diversity of perspec­tives, backgrounds, interests, and skills are essential to building a great product that serves our people.
  2. Affirmative Action:
    • We recognise the historical disparities faced by margin­alised groups and are committed to rectifying them. Our affirmative action initiatives aim to level the playing field by providing equal oppor­tu­ni­ties for advancement.
    • We actively seek out and encourage appli­ca­tions from under­rep­re­sented communities, including women, First Nations Peoples, LGBTIQA+ individuals, veterans, and people with disabil­i­ties.
  3. Recruit-ability:
    • We believe that recruit-ability is not just about qual­i­fi­ca­tions; it’s about recognising potential and fostering growth. We assess candidates based on their abilities, interests, and performance, rather than rigid criteria.
    • Our recruitment process is designed to identify talent from diverse backgrounds, ensuring that we tap into a wide range of skills and perspec­tives.

Remember, this statement reflects our unwavering commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. It serves as a beacon for prospective employees, signalling that they are welcome, valued, and integral to our collective success.
