Closing the gap in engineering

Date posted: 4 June 2014

Engineers Without Borders Australia and Engineers Australia are launching two new reconciliation initiatives to create long-term, systemic change within the engineering industry. The initiatives aim to provide clear technical career pathways and best practice guidance to improve the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia.

'There’s a lot of need for engineering work in and around remote, regional and urban Aboriginal communities,' explains Rueben Berg, Director of Indigenous Architecture Victoria, 'so by facilitating those projects to happen in a more culturally appropriate way, we can help build their capacity.'

Many Australian engineering companies already have Reconciliation Action Plans or Aboriginal Employment Strategies. The new initiatives are about sharing these collective experiences and working together to create large-scale change.
