Diversity, inclusion and wellbeing

Gender diversity

Transurban employs around 2,000 people across Australia and North America, and our major construction projects provide employment to over 6,000 contractors. The proportion of women and men across our permanent workforce are 44 per cent versus 56 per cent; within our senior executive the split is 45 per cent versus 55 per cent and our Company Board 30 per cent versus 70 per cent. Our gender equity policies and programs are ensuring everyone has opportunities for career development. Transurban’s diversity objectives include the goal of achieving gender equity throughout the organisation, from senior executives to our overall workforce and to ensure our processes support this ambition. Our efforts are proving effective. For the past four years, the Australian Government’s Women’s Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) has named us an Employer

of Choice for Gender Equality. We have also recently been ranked by Equileap in the top 200 companies globally for gender balance and gender equality.

Case study Emma-Lee Wood

Engineer, Project Delivery Transurban Queensland “I joined Transurban through the Graduate Development Program in 2016. Transurban has tailored my early-career experience by allowing me to follow my interests and develop practical skills. I developed business skills by working on Transurban Queensland’s Business Plan. I then spent the following six months on the Gateway Upgrade North project, learning about construction and site safety. I’m now managing maintenance projects on the fire suppression systems in Brisbane’s tunnels. It’s exciting to be building diverse engineering knowledge.”
