Action on equality

We continue to encourage more women into engineering through initiatives including recruitment campaigns, career encouragement and greater flexibility following parental leave. Specific initiatives in our offices during 2020 included:

  • Royal HaskoningDHV Southern Africa sponsored the first virtual GirlCode Hackathon 2020. The non-stop coding event focused on building solutions to overcome challenges brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. GirlCode is a non-profit organisation aiming to empower girls through technology. It is an important initiative as South Africa’s small pool of female STEM talent is considered to be holding back the country’s technology sector, which in turn restricts economic growth. Within our offices in Southern Africa, we encourage open conversations around diversity, inclusion and representation and aim to be mindful of stereotyping and unconscious bias.

  • On behalf of HaskoningDHV Vietnam, Managing Director Bas van Dijk signed the Statement of Support for the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) developed by the UN Global Compact and UN Women. The seven principles are aimed at promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment in businesses and communities.

  • Our first mentorship programme for female employees in the United Kingdom launches early in 2021. It strives to reduce our Gender Pay Gap and ensure representation of female colleagues is as equal as possible at all levels. We hope to replicate this programme in other countries where imbalances exist.
