Roads Australia seeks to champion a diverse, inclusive, sustainable and values-led organisation and industry. We aim to support our industry to be high performing, responsible and inclusive, with a culture of contribution.

To drive these objectives, the Roads Australia Board has convened a Diversity Sub-Committee. The Committee has four key focus areas:
Engaging and retaining women
Supporting indigenous engagement
Promoting social enterprise programs
Fostering young talent
As part of Roads Australia’s diversity and inclusion strategy, we are committed to actively seeking to retain women, and skilled people more broadly, in the industry.
Research indicates that a large percentage of women who leave engineering and construction to take care of children feel they struggle to return to work because of the connection lost during their leave.
To offset this, RA offers up to five complimentary parental leave seats per major industry event, encouraging those on leave to stay connected to peers and up-to-date with industry trends.
This has been hugely successful in ensuring networks aren’t lost and improving the confidence of those who have been on extended leave as they return to work.
