We’re pleased to share the news that we’ve joined other high-profile Australian companies as a WORK180 (previously known as DCC Jobs) endorsed employer for women.
WORK180 is a job platform where employers are pre-screened to ensure they support women’s careers. Founded by Gemma Lloyd and Valeria Ignatieva, WORK180 only advertises jobs for companies that meet criteria on aspects such as paid parental leave, pay equity and flexible working. This allows women to search and apply for jobs with the assurance that each employer listed on the site supports women.
WORK180 has succeeded in offering women a more empowered job-seeking experience. It is also helping transform workplaces by inspiring companies who do not meet their requirements to improve in order to advertise with WORK180.
At MEC, we have always recognised the value of diversity. “Companies need to cast the net wider and think about the skills and experience of women, rather than a prescriptive career path,” explains Maria Joyce, MEC’s General Manager – Strategy and Business Development. Maria is also Committee Chair of Women in Mining and Resources Queensland (WIMARQ) and a Queensland committee representative for Women in Mining Network (WIMnet).
We’re thrilled to join respected Australian leaders from the technology, banking, mining, construction and retail sectors as an employer who encourages and values the contribution of women within our company.
