Arup is proud to have a diversity of cultural heritage, ethnicity and religion across its Australasia workforce. Internal volunteer staff surveys provide indicators of the diversity of religion and faith, including Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Christianity. Arup’s Culture and Ethnicity Diversity and Inclusion Portfolio liaises closely with office leaders and People and Culture team to implement changes to workplace guidelines in consideration of various cultures and religions. These include access to multipurpose rooms to be used for prayer and meditation, as well as within catering guidelines and food preparation areas/facilities.
Annually, Arup uses Harmony Day events to bring awareness to the diversity of culture, race and ethnicity within our organisation
