Promoting diversity is a key part of Diona’s strategy. We know it’s an important element of any successful, innovative, and sustainable company.
Diona is committed to a workplace environment that is equitable and inclusive, where all employees are respected and individual strengths, experiences and backgrounds are embraced and celebrated.
Diona is governed by the Calibre Group Diversity Policy, which details our vision for diversity and encompasses a range of factors, including ethnicity, disability, age, educational experience and gender. In 2017, gender diversity and indigenous engagement were earmarked as key focuses across the Calibre Group businesses. Committees containing champions have been established to drive diversity objectives and hold ourselves accountable for reaching our targets and goals.
Workplace Gender Equality Agency Reporting – Fostering Diversity
As part of the Calibre Group, Diona is part of Calibre's annual reporting to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) under the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 (Cth).
You can view Calibre's gender diversity performance for the period 1 April 2015 – 31 March 2016 in our 2016 Workplace Gender Equality Report.
Championing Women in Civil
Outside of our internal drive for diversity in the workplace, Diona is part of the Civil Contractors Federation of NSW (CCF NSW) Women in Civil Program. Backed by the NSW Government through Women NSW, TAFE NSW – the program's partner in Civil Training – and Roads and Maritime Services, the program aims to encourage more women to join and remain in the civil construction and maintenance industry.
On Tuesday, 5 December 2017, Diona joined other Civil industry employers, the NSW Minister for Women, the Hon. Tanya Davies MP, and CCF NSW CEO David Castledine to sign a commitment statement at a ‘Championing Women in Civil’ function at Doltone House in Sydney. This commitment outlines seven steps that civil contractors will follow as Champions of Employers for Women in Civil.
