Aurizon announced winner of Diversity and Inclusion Award
Aurizon has won the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI) Award for Gender Equity in the Workplace.
Last year Aurizon's Managing Director & CEO Lance Hockridge set an aspirational target of 30% women at Aurizon by the end of 2019.
This award (won for the second year running) is great recognition for the progress Aurizon continues to make in gender equity initiatives and programs across the Company.
The award was accepted by the Aurizon's Male Champions of Change Convenor Ed McKeiver, stating that "we must continue to find new and innovating ways to attract, recruit, develop and retain women in our Company."
Aurizon was among a group of high-calibre finalists of ANZ, Aurecon, KPMG, Monash University and The GPT Group.
