Diversity and Inclusion

At Beca, our creative people are our greatest asset - our vision is “Creative people together transforming the world.”

A diverse and inclusive workplace



We know that the more diverse we are, the better our ideas, strategies and client solutions. Inclusion underpins our creativity and innovation, enabling us to bring greater value for our clients and our communities.  

Valuing differences

​We aim to provide all of our people with an equal opportunity to build a career that reflects their ability and passions. To achieve this, we acknowledge that how we think and the decisions we make are affected by our unconscious biases so we’re actively working to identify and mitigate unconscious bias in some of our most important processes.

Enhancing our gender diversity

We believe that it is critical to the sustainability of our industry and our business that we have more women across all levels. We are committed to creating an inclusive environment that supports women to succeed, and are a founding member of the Diversity Agenda; focused on creating greater gender balance in architecture and engineering.

Enhancing cultural diversity

Our employees come from a diversity of cultures, enhancing our creativity and strengthening our solutions. We actively celebrate cultural diversity across Beca and are committed to enhancing our cultural diversity further. We have numerous initiatives underway to support this already, including a partnership with the South Pacific Indigenous Engineering Students (SPIES) to support Maori and Pasifika students as they transition into their engineering careers, and the Beca Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) which offers employment, training, business partnerships and increase cultural awareness and understand of First Australians.
