Diversity

Douglas Partners recognises that the very best integrated practical solutions in engineering are as result of a diverse and inclusive workforce, each contributing their unique perspective, technical expertise and experience to the task at hand.

We remain at the forefront of excellence in our specialised engineering disciplines because of the greater innovation, technical proficiency and strengths our diverse range of consultants and staff possess, no matter whether those diversities include professional interests, technical expertise, gender, ethnicity, cultural, religious or socioeconomic background, age, or any other distinction that makes each of us individual.

Diversity and inclusion within Douglas Partners, allows us to better adapt to a changing world, recognise solutions from a different perspective and provide our clients best possible solutions and outcomes, whilst providing the opportunity for all staff to harness their full potential.

Our diversity policy commits us to promoting, encouraging, respecting and recognising diversity in the workplace by:

  • creating a positive and inclusive culture that supports and encourages workplace diversity;
  • promoting diversity through the inclusion of people with a variety of experiences and perspectives;
  • encouraging communication and co-operation, so that we can work together in an inclusive and welcoming environment; and
  • measuring our progress so that we are accountable to ourselves.
“Douglas Partners understands the value of workplace gender diversity – better performance, more engaged employees, greater innovation and improved market reputation, and is creating the conditions to encourage more women to pursue, and to excel in the rewarding world of Engineering.” - Coleen MacKinnon, Advisor, Male Champions of Change.
