CEQ is a proud supporter of encouraging diversity in the workplace, specifically ensuring equal opportunity to men and women in all roles across the business.  The company employs a 17% female workforce, 5% higher than the industry average of 12.1% as reported by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

CEQ’s Papua New Guinea operation, boats a 15% female workforce, and has actively sourced females to work within it’s trades staff contingent.   Across much of PNG’s media, public relations activity and C-suite roles, there is a large focus on the promotion of leadership and decision making, and ending violence against women in the region. CEQ is proud to be supporting the movement by engaging, developing and retaining female employees, in what is traditionally male-dominated industry.  Electrical Trade Assistant Jayll (pictured above) joined CEQ in January 2021, and is currently working on the Angau Hospital Redevelopment Project in Lae, Papua New Guinea.  Jayll joins a team of 12 electrical workers on site, and has been a welcome addition to an already high-performing team.  Her seamless integration into the CEQ work team and the quality of her workmanship on-project has been a marker of the progress made toward breaking stereotypes within industry.

The PNG Marketing Magazine yesterday promoted via their LinkedIn page, the appointment of Sharon Kupp-Tengdui, the first female president of the PNG Institute of Directors Board (PNG Marketing Magazine).  Her appointment was supported by the election of both a female Vice President and female Treasurer .“Steady progress had been made in the journey to transform the Institute and I will build on the good work done by the previous Board,” Sharon said.

Alongside the in-country initiatives such as Sharon’s appointment, the Australian Government’s contracted commitment to Pacific Women in Papua New Guinea until 2022 is over $104 million, reports Australian Aid.  CEQ’s engagement with the  Angau Hospital Redevelopment Project is made possible by the funding provided by Australian Aid, and CEQ is proud to be engaged and aligned with the initiatives set out as priority.  More on the Pacific Women in PNG initiative can be found on the Australian Aid Website
